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

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.
