Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum now back on her feet. Dolores Aveiro, 65 was rushed to hospital in early March after suffering a stroke.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother, Maria Dolores wrote: ‘I am lucky to have the opportunity to live to love my family and have them close to me.
“Me and my family would like to thank the medical team looking after her, and kindly ask that we are all given some privacy at this time.”
Thank you to everyone for their support and affection. These have been difficult days but of struggle and victory.
‘Now I’m at home surrounded by the love of my family, my good energy. I will stay here as I like to but always looking after myself first. Everything will be fine.’
‘You thought I wouldn’t come back but I returned slowly, softly, calmly and with peace in my heart.’
She added:’I also returned with a thought in the form of a message – why judge the colour of one’s skin, the clothes or shoes people use or the way they look. We are nothing when it comes to life, we are simple, pedestrians in this world.
Life is a lesson and we just have to value it and be thankful for everything. And have faith in God that everything will turn out okay,’
The matriarchal figure in the Ronaldo family is now relaxing in a private medical facility.
Local reports say she cannot have any contact with Cristiano, 35, or her grandchildren because of the coronavirus crisis.
Ronaldo is currently self-isolating with his family at his seaside mansion by the Atlantic Ocean in Funchal.
