Ronaldo shows off new svelte figure in Brazil

Ronaldo has kicked those pounds away, replacing his beer belly
with defined abs.

The now-retired Brazilian soccer great shed more than 37 pounds
in a televised weight-loss program. He weighed 223 on Sunday, down
from 260 when he began the three-month fitness program in
September. The ”Fantastico” variety show chronicled the former
striker’s intense exercise routines, which included weightlifting,
swimming, dance and yoga classes and forays onto the soccer
field.

Ronaldo, a three-time FIFA player of the year, retired early
last year but is a member of the local organizing committee for the
2014 World Cup. He has also done commercials, some of them poking
at his dramatic weight gain.
