On Friday, the world's largest poker site announced that Brazilian football legend Ronaldo Nazario had joined Rafael Nadal, Fatima Moreira (one of Holland's best known field hockey players), Marcus Hellner (cross-country skier from Sweden) and Boris Becker on its Team PokerStars SportStar. Ronaldo retired after a long and successful football career in 2011 at the age of 34. He will play under the alias "Ronaldo" on PokerStars, but he will also play live tournaments in Brazil. It will be interesting to see if he's as good at poker as football!
"Whenever I try to deliver my best in everything, in football and in life. Poker is another challenge that excites me: read the game and opponents and choose the best way to win. For some time I have been discovering the game of poker and PokerStars chosen because they meet a community passionate about the sport. Moreover, it has a great team of players," said Ronaldo in a statement.
