As one of the world’s highest paid footballers, Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo is used to enjoying life’s luxuries and is currently enjoying a holiday in the chic town of St Tropez on the French Riviera.
But the Real Madrid striker was caught in a less than glamourous position this week when he was snapped relieving himself between two parked cars outside one of the French town’s most famous clubs.

Ronaldo was caught urinating outside Le Quai, nestled along the French town’s picturesque port, reported Spanish sports newspaper, Mundo Deportivo.
Police were soon on the scene and gave the footballer a talking to, telling him to move on from the port area, but stopped short of fining the Real Madrid star.

In Paris, you can be hit with a €35 fine for urinating on a wall and there are stories of people being slapped with fines of up to €450 for relieving themselves in public.
Ronaldo, who also has his own range of footwear and famously dabbles in modelling, has been on holiday with friends in the south of France for the past few days, perhaps hoping to put a woeful Real Madrid season behind him.
