Cristiano Ronaldo Poses For CR7 Underwear Line Launch In Spain
Cristiano Ronaldo launched his underwear line on Thursday, and posed for cameras at the launch event in front of a 30 ft poster of himself wearing just a pair of his CR7 brand underwear.
At the event, Ronaldo arrived in more than just the underwear he was there to promote. He wore a tight white button down tucked into a pair of light-washed jeans. He accessorized with a belt, which featured a buckle reading “CR7.”
Thankfully for Ronaldo, his CR7 campaign was able to recover from a poorly worded tweet that was sent out through his Twitter account earlier this month which read: "Thank you all for participating in the CR7 boys underwear competition — it's been a real pleasure to see all of your photos." It was quickly deleted, and Ronaldo promptly addressed it with a new post.
Wrong phrases out of the contest can be tricky, especially for the ones not paying attention.

While Ronaldo might be the latest soccer star to parlay his athletic build into a career in underwear modeling, he’s certainly not the first. David Beckham, who recently launched a line at H&M, has modeled for Emporio Armani. Swedish soccer player Fredrik Ljunberg, meanwhile, has posed for Calvin Klein.
On Wednesday, Ronaldo had been running around on the soccer pitch for a La Liga match, where his club Real Madrid faced off against Sevilla. In the league game, Ronaldo finished with a hat-trick, scoring three of Real’s seven goals in the 7-3 clash.
