On various social media platforms, it has been widely rumoured that Cristiano Ronaldo got a 22-carat gold motorcycle as a gift from the Saudi Arabian government recently. The 38-year-old, one of the greatest footballers of all-time, is currently plying his trade in the Saudi Pro League for Al- Nassr after joining the club from Manchester United in England in the middle of 2022-23 football season.

In a surprising turn of events, Kiran Bedi, the retired Indian Police Service official, shared a video on her official Twitter account with a caption, “Motor Bike gifted to foot baller RONALDO, BY the government of SAUDI ARABIA.” It had the similar 22 carat gold motorcycle which has been claimed to be gifted to the Portuguese footballer.

But, there has been no official confirmation about the rumour from Cristiano Ronaldo or the Saudi Arabian government. No prominent news agency in Saudi or anywhere around the world has reported about the claim either. So, as of this moment, it can be reliably said that Ronaldo hasn’t received a 22-carat gold motorcycle from anyone in the middle eastern country.

Meanwhile, according to a few news reports, the motorcycle in the video belongs to a certain @faisal_abu_sara on Instagram. On his account profile, there are multiple pictures of the motorcycle. In the comments section, Faisal has also claimed that his motorcycle is only gold coated and not made of 22 carat gold.

Notably, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 13 goals in 14 matches played for Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League thus far. His club is in second place on the league standings with three matches remaining in the season.
