Cristiano Ronaldo has paid a courtesy call to a hospital in Singapore where the daughter of his friend Peter Lim has just given birth.
The Portuguese striker was in the country to sign an endorsement deal with Lim’s company Mint Media but decided to stop by to see Kim, the daughter of the owner of Valencia Football Club, and her newly-born son at the Thomson Medical Hospital. The Real Madrid star is very close with Peter Lim and his family, having sold his image rights to his organization Mint Media back in 2015.
WIth Cristiano Ronaldo in town, one would obviously expect nothing less than exuberant fans flooding the hospital premises in their numbers. The former Manchester United winger was mobbed by hundreds of fans and only had the chance to make his way into the hospital with the help of a few security personnel.

After his mission in Singapore, the iconic number 7 is expected to fly off to China where he’s expected to make appearances in Shangai and Beijing on the 22nd and 23rd of July. An arrangement between his major sponsor, Nike, and the governing body of the Chinese Super League will see the four-time Ballon d’Or winner witnessing the clash between Shangai SIPG and Guangzhou Evergrande at the Shangai Stadium on Saturday.
