Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates turning 30 by baring almost all for CR7 underwear line

Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo turned 30 on Thursday, but he certainly hasn't put on any middle-aged spread, as photos released today for his CR7 clothing line make perfectly obvious.

For his company's Spring/Summer line, the Real Madrid forward filled out a pair of underpants, showing off a perfect six-pack and highly toned pecs.

Last month, Ronaldo confirmed to the Associated Press that he had broken up with his longtime girlfriend, the Russian model Irina Shayk.

"After dating for five years, my relationship with Irina Shayk has come to an end," Ronaldo said. "We believed it would be best for both of us to take this step now… I wish Irina the greatest happiness."

But it isn't likely that the photos of her ex will make Shayk terribly happy. 

Judging from Ronaldo having shown up at the Ballon d'Or ceremony in Zurich without Shaydk – and subsequent pictures of him celebration his third Ballon d’Or win with TV reporter Lucia Villalon – it's likely that he instigated the break-up with Shayk.

Along with the photos, Ronaldo released 15 health and fitness tips to commemorate the 2015 line. 

Among these are: "I always make sure I have good music to listen to. It helps you zone out, get motivated and do your best. I like to listen to hip hop and reggaeton!" and "Fit in exercise wherever you can. You can do an abs workout in your bedroom when you wake up in the morning or before you go to bed."

The name, CR7, combines Ronaldo's initials with his uniform number.
