Ronaldo again…….and again
Ronaldo reached another milestone in his glittering career tonight, scoring twice as Real Madrid won the European Champions League, beating Juventus 4 – 1. This was the Madeiran’s fourth Champion’s League winner’s medal and took his career tally of goals to 600 (104 in the Champion’s League). He also became the first footballer to score in three Champion’s League finals. Ronaldo’s former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson presented the CR7 with the man-of-the-match award.
He is pictured above with his brother Hugo Aveiro, partner Georgina Rodriguez and son Cristiano Jr. His proud mother Dolores Aveiro was also in attendance. Must be nailed-on for a fifth Ballon d’Or as the world’s best footballer. Love him or hate him I have always had an affinity for him since assisting the New York Times research his remarkable history in June 2014
Golden Gate delay
It always seemed ambitious that the Golden Gate café would be open for the end of May, which duly did not happen as the owners had confidently predicted – reported in a previous post. The schedule has now moved to the end of this month. The renovation costs must be a fraction of the astronomical purchase price, so quite why they are behind schedule is not clear – ship and ha’porth of tar comes to mind.
The Atlantic Festival kicked off tonight – full program as usual below…
