“I did not break any protocol,” Ronaldo explained on his Instagram page. This came after Italy’s minister for sport said that the Portuguese forward may have violated coronavirus protocols.
“They’re saying that I broke Italian laws but it’s all a lie. I spoke with my team and we have the responsibility to do things right.
“Everything was done with authorisation. Principally for the Italian man whose name I’m not going to say, it’s a lie, I abided by all the protocols.”
In Ronaldo’s words, he has been battling COVID-19 through strict protocols also. He explained further: “I’m on one floor and my children are on another. For the next ten days it’s going to be like that.
“It’s difficult not to be in contact with them, but we have to respect the rules.”
He further added that he spends some time alone in the sun since testing positive, which he had found very helpful.
“The sun helps a lot. People don’t have that perception, but it does a lot of good,” he said.
“When I get the chance, I do some sunbathing. In Turin, it is more difficult, but I always try to get 20 or 30 minutes of sunshine.
“I love being on my terrace soaking up the sun, it’s very important. Having high vitamin C and D, with high levels, Selenium, Omega 3, eating well and properly, doing sport.
“A lot of people don’t like it but just walking is important. And sleeping well, having a good night’s sleep is the best medicine.
“With everything off, no lights on. Thank God I sleep well every night, always eight or nine hours a day. Invest in it, it is essential.
“Eat well, lots of vegetables, lots of greens and don’t abuse sweets to have a strong immune system.
