We already brought you part one of our list of 15 things you probably didn’t know about Cristiano Ronaldo, and now we’re back with part two! Check out eight more interesting and surprising facts about the soccer superstar that you definitely (probably) didn’t know. You might be surprised by what you learn!

Number Eight: He Made a Museum for His Fans. In 2013, Ronaldo gave the people what they wanted and opened his own museum. The museum is in Funchal, Portugal, and is called Museu CR7. Visitors can view his trophies and a life-size replica of him.

Number Seven: He Does Not Have Any Tattoos. Unlike many famous sports stars and athletes, Ronaldo does not have a single tattoo on his body. He has refrained from tattoos so he can continue to donate blood regularly.

Number Six: He Has His Own Was Figure. Along with Pele, David Beckham, and Steven Gerrard, Ronaldo has his own wax figure in Madame Tussauds’ wax museum. He got his own figure in 2010.

Number Five: He Has a Lot of Famous Fans. Among his millions of fans is the very famous Arnold Schwarzenegger! Schwarzenegger has said that he is a fan of the soccer superstar’s “great abs.”

Number Four: He Does Not Drink. Ronaldo’s father faced a lot of issues with alcohol, so in order to separate himself from his father, Ronaldo has chosen not to ever drink alcohol. We can respect that.

Number Three: He Has His Own iPhone Game. In 2011, Ronaldo got his own app, which is essentially just a game. The game is called Heads Up with Cristiano.

Number Two: He Makes Money…A Lot of Money. In 2014 alone, Ronaldo earned a hefty $80 million. That made him the second highest-paid athlete in the world that year! $28 million of that $80 million reportedly came from endorsements he did.

Number One: He Loves Poker. Ronaldo was actually one of the faces of PokerStars, and there have been many rumors that he loves to play poker. The PokerStars ad that features him shows him playing at a table, going all in and eventually winning after the pizza delivery boy takes a selfie with him.
