Ronaldo Dedicated Himself and Lost 40 Pounds, After Retiring As a Professional Athlete

Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldo played his last match in 2011. He saw 2012 as the opportune time to get his act together and finally lose some weight.

Ronaldo, appearing on Globo’s show Medida Certa, has lost nearly 40 pounds since September, dropping from a 42-inch to a 36-inch waist. This appears to be the result of swimming, dancing, yoga and beach soccer.

He plays in his annual charity match with Zinedine Zidane later this week. We may see him break into his first full sprint since about 2005.
