Cristiano Ronaldo accused of using Photoshop in latest Instagram post:
It’s been tirelessly documented how the Juventus superstar has gone above and beyond the call of duty to improve the physical side of his game and ensure that father time stays away for as long as possible.
Even as the Portuguese plods closer to his 40th birthday than his 30th, you can be certain that he’ll be sprinting quicker, jumping higher and lifting heavier weights than players over a decade his junior.
So, it’s no surprise than when Ronaldo occasionally whips off his shirt to celebrate a crucial goal that the frame beneath it is what most men spend years trying to perfect.
It’s no wonder Ronaldo is always named amongst the most attractive footballers and has been asked to model underwear when approximately one million muscles are rippling from his torso.
Has Ronaldo used Photoshop?
All that considered, you’d think that nobody would bat an eyelid when Ronaldo posted a topless photo of himself to Instagram during lockdown this week.
The image showed him promoting the ‘Sixpad’, an EMS training device that he endorses, while sitting on the stairs of his property in just his underwear and the pads.
Nothing unusual, right? Well, that’s not strictly the case, because many of the replies on the post are actually of the opinion that Ronaldo’s six pack has been ‘photoshopped’.
Football fans point the finger
It’s well known that some images of celebrities have been edited and airbrushed in post-production from time to time, but surely Ronaldo doesn’t need Photoshop to help him out?
Well, try telling that to commenters who left messages such as: “why does this look photoshopped”, “so edited” and “looks so fake to me”.
Another fan wrote: “Mr Cristiano, what are you up to?”
Followed by: “PhotoShop skills”.
Aside from that, Ronaldo just seemed to pick up some cheap banter suggesting that the ‘Sixpad’ looked like women’s underwear which, unlike the PhotoShop debate, is pretty conclusive.
