Brazil legend Ronaldo to study advertising in London
Brazil legend and World Cup winner Ronaldo is moving to London next month to become an advertising student.
According to Brazil's Veja magazine, the 36-year-old will stay for at least two years and take up a work placement with London-based communications company WPP.
Ronaldo’s spokesman recently confirmed s plans to learn the tricks of the trade with WPP's founder Sir Martin Sorrell.
He said: "He intends to go to England, which he will receive advice and guidance from Mr Sorrell, who's the head of the world's largest advertising company."
WPP is the world's largest communications services group, employing 162,000 people, in 3,000 offices in 110 countries.
The ex-Real Madrid striker said in an interview with Brazil's Meio e Mensagem newspaper that he can not wait to become a student again.
Ronaldo said: "Eighteen years have passed and I've hardly studied at all. I feel a great need to become a student again.
"I've learned a lot in life, travelling, living abroad, just in the school of life.
"But I also have to immerse myself in something. Learning from Martin Sorrell will be perfect.
"I won't leave him alone, I'll be asking him questions the whole day, just like a striker. He's going to have to tell me everything."
Ronaldo, who retired from football last year, is also on the organising committees for the 2014 Brazil World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympics.
