Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo had gone on a holiday to Greece with his friends and family after Portugal's Russia World Cup exit.
The 33-year-old, who is third on the list of highest-paid sports persons, spent the time off football at a luxury resort in Greece.
After being mighty impressed with the staff's service at the resort in the Peloponnese region, Ronaldo left them a huge cheque worth around Rs 16 lakh (£17,850), according to The Sun.
In Instagram photos, Ronaldo can be seen relaxing at the stunning resort along with wife, son, and mother among others.
The Portugal captain also meet Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli at the resort over his deal with the Serie A giants.
Ronaldo exempted from the pre-season tour
Ronaldo has reportedly been given permission to skip Juventus' pre-season tour of the US. He was set to face his former side in Washington DC on August 4 but will now enjoy some extra rest ahead of the new challenge in Italy.
He had dropped a hint about bringing an end to his nine-year association with Real when he spoke about his stint in the Spanish capital in the past tense after the Champions League final in May.
Ronaldo's move to Juventus though came as a surprise as he was never linked to the Serie A winners.
Nonetheless, the celebrated footballer said it wasn't a hard decision for him to make and said he is happy to join a "great club" at the twilight of his career.
It seems Juventus have already started to reap the rewards of bringing one of the most marketable superstars of world football.
The Italian giants, who have been quite active on social media with promotional activities, sold more than 520,000 No. 7 shirts on the opening day of the sale.
They made more than €50m by selling Ronaldo's shirts in 24 hours and their website had crashed due to unprecedented demand.
