German newspaper Bild appears to have taken a stance to stir controversy around Champions League winner Cristiano Ronaldo’s sexuality.
They published several photos of the player on holiday with his male friends while on holiday in Ibiza, the Balearic island of Spain.
The tabloid tried to pry into his personal life by controversially captioning a photo as: "Women? Wrong! Captain Ronaldo and his guys are self-sufficient."
The Bild had also commented in the story when they said: "On the boat there is absolute woman doldrums - rather, the boys sizzle among themselves," and appeared to insinuate about Ronaldo’s sexual preference and the fact that all his companions on the trip were male.
Ronaldo is currently enjoying a short break with friends after playing in last week's Champions League final before soon joining up with his Portugal team-mates ahead of Euro 2016.
Ronaldo who raises his young son Cristiano jr alone has in times past, had people unnecessarily question his sexuality while others gossiped that his close friend from Morocco, Badri Hari could be his homosexual partner.
The three-time Ballon d'Or winner despite his injury helped Real Madrid to an unprecedented 11th European title.
