The Best of Ronaldo

On this day 39 years ago, Ronaldo was born. No, not the Ronaldo that currently dazzles us on the TV screens for Real Madrid and Portugal, but the original Ronaldo for Barca, Inter, Real Madrid and Brazil. The one and only R9, Ronaldo Lima was unlike anything we've ever seen, and undoubtedly goes down as one of the best players ever. Though he's perhaps best known amongst the younger generation for his crazy haircuts and weight problems, he should be remembered for being a truly complete striker, possessing power and finesse in equal measure. Here's the best of Ronaldo...

Ronaldo at PSV, where his goals got very, very good

His fleeting Barcelona days with Bobby Robson

Then his 5 incredible years at Inter Milan

Il Fenomeno for Los Galacticos

He was even quality in adverts

Happy Birthday Ronaldo! His best moments ever...
