Born in one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Rio de Janeiro, Ronaldo Luiz De Lima overcame his humble beginnings to become one of the greatest footballers the world has ever known. Here, Clarkson uncovers the truth about Ronaldo's life—his modest childhood in the deadly, drug ravaged slums of Rio, where he witnessed friends murdered; his shame and disappointment at the 1998 World Cup in Paris, where he was brought to his knees in front of a world-wide audience; and his glorious moment of triumph as he overcame all his past troubles to win the 2002 World Cup for Brazil. Ronaldo's mother, father, school teachers, and childhood friends all reveal their secrets about the footballing superstar in this book.
