Cristiano Ronaldo has taken time out his busy schedule of scoring goals to share a story of another form of success. The Portugal captain explained just how little pressure he felt ahead of his country's biggest ever international game, by joking he woke up beside three blondes the morning of the final.

Speaking to France Football, he joked: "When I woke up on the day of the final I was with three blondes in the bed. No seriously, I woke up aware that it was a special day, that we were going to play the final of the Euros in France against France, but I still slept eight hours."

"I did not feel as much pressure as, for example, with Real Madrid in the Champions League final [in May 2016, against Atletico Madrid]. In Portugal, you know you have nothing to lose." Ronaldo, who is his country's leading goal scorer of all time, also told how Portugal's positive attitude through the tournament came from the sense that they weren't expecting to win.
