Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has topped the list of world’s most charitable sport stars. It was bound to happen as Ronaldo donated millions of dollars of his fortune to worthy causes.

The 30-year-old Portuguese footballer was named the most charitable sportsperson by Dosomething.org, standing at the top of Athletes Gone Good list of 20 stars.

WWE superstar John Cena followed at second, Serena Williams was third, while Brazil’s football starlet, Neymar, was fifth in the list.

“(Ronaldo) raised money for various causes including donating more than $83,000 to a 10-year-old fan in need of brain surgery and giving more than $165,000 to fund a cancer centre in Portugal that treated his mother,”Dosomething.org stated.

“Ronaldo has also used his fame as a global spokesperson for a variety of causes including childhood hunger, obesity and biodiversity.”

The Real Madrid striker earns an estimated £230,000 a week salary (after tax deductions), excluding other deals and endorsements.

In May, Ronaldo reported gave £5 million to help the aid effort in Nepal following the earthquake that shook the world.

Cristiano Ronaldo has a history of being charitable. In 2004, he flew to help Indonesian tsunami victims after he saw footage of a young man in Portugal jersey with his name on the back.

“My father always taught me that when you help other people, then God will give you double,” Ronaldo stated in 2013. “And that’s what has really happened to me. When I have helped other people who are in need, God has helped me more.”

Here’s the list of 20 most charitable sport stars (As expected, there’s no Indian cricketer on this list).
