More information about Final Jeopardy:
Portuguese football megastar Cristiano Ronaldo was also ranked as the world’s highest-paid athlete by Forbes in 2016 and 2017 and has been ranked as the world’s most famous athlete by ESPN from 2016 to 2019. Since 2002, he has played for Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus, as well as the Portuguese national team, and has scored over 700 senior goals (for both club and country). He has also won the Ballon d’Or award five times (second only to Lionel Messi’s six).
Fun fact about Cristiano Ronaldo: he is named after former U.S. president Ronald Reagan, as Reagan was Cristiano Ronaldo’s father’s favorite actor.
