Ronaldo in Japan to promote muscle gadget

The 30-year-old Real Madrid star emerged onto a Tokyo stage bathed in white smoke and blinding light. Then he just stood there for a while, looking uncomfortable, until he was joined by his sponsor and a translator.

A slick video played on overhead screens showed Ronaldo’s well-toned form with the electric muscle toner attached to his torso. The company behind the device claims it is the easy way to achieve that desirable washboard look.

Tuesday’s PR event came a year after the Portuguese player was mocked on social media for advertising a face exerciser that users were supposed to grip between their teeth as they nodded their heads to flap its extended arms.
