Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Portugal), who is playing for Al Nasr in the 1st professional league in Saudi Arabia, was spotted painting his toenails black, arousing fans’ curiosity.
According to the British media Daily Mail on the 17th (local time), Ronaldo recently posted a picture of himself taking a break on his Instagram as usual.
In the photo, Ronaldo is sitting on a sauna chair with his upper body and feet exposed.
However, the toenails of both his feet were painted with black material, and some fans discovered this and raised questions.
This isn’t the first time Ronaldo has been seen painting his toenails. When he took a photo with MMA fighter Francis Ngano (37, Cameroon) in January, Ronaldo’s toenails were painted with a black substance.
Regarding this, Daily Mail introduced that it is a substance that athletes paint to protect their bodies.
According to the media, some athletes paint their toenails with medicine or wear separate protective equipment as part of body care. This is to prevent fungal growth or bacterial infection caused by moisture in the feet during prolonged exercise.바카라사이트
