Brazilian football legend to study in London

Throughout his 18 year playing career Ronaldo scored over 330 goals, made over 470 professional appearances and won countless trophies. One of the greatest footballers of all time and two-time Ballon D’Or winner, he is notorious for his goal-scoring record, dodgy haircuts and eating too many burgers.

Following his recent successes on a Brazilian weight-loss reality TV show, Ronaldo, now 37 pounds lighter, is set to move to London to become an advertising student where he’ll study under WPP (the world’s largest advertising organisation) founder Sir Martin Sorrell.

Speaking to Meio e Mensagem newspaper , he said that “eighteen years have passed and I’ve hardly studied at all. I feel a great need to become a student again. I’ve learned a lot in life, travelling, living abroad, just in the school of life. But I also have to immerse myself in something. Learning from Martin Sorrell will be perfect. I won’t leave him alone, I’ll be asking him questions the whole day, just like a striker. He’s going to have to tell me everything.”

We’d like to wish you the best of luck, Ronaldo! If you need a hand finding an advertising internship after your studies, you know who to call…
