Cristiano Ronaldo sends signed Juventus shirts to team of Cuban medics deployed in Turin to fight coronavirus

CRISTIANO RONALDO has sent boxes of signed Juventus shirts to a team of Cuban medics deployed in Turin to help the fight against coronavirus.

Many groups of doctors from Cuba were sent across the world – to 35 different countries – to help tackle the coronavirus outbreak.

Italy was one of the hardest-hit nations early on in the pandemic, with Turin hit particularly badly.

Now Juventus have done their bit to say thank you to the heroes from Cuba.

Ronaldo and boss Maurizio Sarri had hoped to thank the doctors in person after they helped save countless lives in the city.

However, Covid-19 lockdown restrictions banned from going to visit them.

Instead, the Serie A giants sent boxes of Juventus shirts, all signed by Ronaldo, to the doctors as a token of their gratitude.

During the coronavirus pandemic, few have stepped up to the plate quite like Ronaldo.

The Juventus forward, who earns £500,000-a-week, has put his money where his mouth is and aided those in need.

As well as forfeiting £3.8million in wages to help Juventus stay afloat, Ronaldo teamed up with his agent Jorge Mendes back in March to donate £1m to hospitals in Portugal to fight the virus.

Hospitals in Porto and Lisbon were recipients of the generous donation – receiving beds and ventilators to cope with the high-number of patients suffering with Covid-19.
