Following threats from ISIS concerning the 2018 FIFA World Cup to be held in Russia in a few days’ time, Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, has hired a famous bull fighter to be his personal bodyguard throughout the tournament.
The 33-year-old current World Footballer of the year has employed shaven-headed strongman Nuno Marecos, whose usual day job is to challenge half-tonne bulls with his bare hands, as his bodyguard.
The Sun Uk reports that hard-man Nuno was drafted in to keep the star safe at last Saturday’s Champions League final in Kiev – and has been booked to follow him around at the World Cup in Russia.
Ronaldo who is captain of Portuguese national team to the world moved to bring in ex-paratrooper and MMA fighter Nuno after ISIS threatened to behead the star in a chilling mocked up photo.
A source said: “Ronaldo watches a lot of bullfighting and handpicked Nuno after thinking he was one of the toughest men he’d ever seen. He knows that people won’t mess with him if he has someone as tough as him by his side. Nuno was with him almost every waking hour in Kiev and he will be there for him in the World Cup too.”
Hard-man Nuno – a 6ft 2in man mountain – is best known for leading a group of men based in the town of Chamusca – a 70 mile drive from Lisbon – who entertain crowds in bullfights during their free time.
Ronaldo is really serious with his security during the World Cup in Russia.
