Ronaldo opens hotel named CR7

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo inaugurated his own hotel on Friday called "CR7", while the airport on his home island of Funchal was renamed in his honour.

Two weeks after leading Portugal to the Euro 2016 title, the national skipper appeared on a terrace of the red-coloured building overlooking the sea, wearing a white baseball cap.

"It's a little strange. I never could have imagined that I would be a hotelier at the age of 31," said Ronaldo of his hotel which opened on July 1.

Yesterday, Ronaldo visited his new museum situated on the ground floor of his hotel. A second "CR7" hotel is due to open in Lisbon later this year with two others planned in Madrid and New York next year.

Meanwhile, the president of the Madeira region, Miguel Albuquerque, said the local airport would be named in Ronaldo's honour. - AFP.
