Could This Little Dirty Secret of Ronaldo’s be True?

The “Phenomenon,” who retired last week apparently tried to put his illness-induced bodyweight problem on check, using Xenical, a weight control pill with accelerated evacuation side-effects.

According to former Brazil coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo, the Phenomenon played the 1999 “Copa América” wearing diapers, in efforts to prevent unexpected side effects form happening on the court. 


Laugh all you want, but the truth is diapers did not prevent him from being the striker of that year, earn the golden cleat, and make about 12 million Euros during his stellar career.
