Real Madrid star strips to his smalls for new Armani campaign

Cristiano Ronaldo has stripped off for the new Emporio Armani Men’s Underwear campaign.

With perfectly-chiselled abs, it’s no surprise that the Real Madrid footballer, 24, has been signed up to take over from sporting icon David Beckham.

Boasting a fitness regime which includes a gruelling 3,000 sit-ups a day, Cristiano insists he was ‘flattered’ to land the gig. 

Giorgio Armani is a legend in the fashion world and I have long been a fan of his work,’ says Cristiano.

The black and white shots of the soccer star are by renowned photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

Cristiano is a great looking man with the perfect physique of an athlete,’ says Giorgio. ‘For me, he is the essence of youth – spontaneous, exciting, a real maverick.’
