The Portuguese international, who plays his club football for Real Madrid in Spain, is recognized as one of the best players in the world on the pitch, and a global sports icon off the field.
"I believe strongly in the importance of the right nutrition for me as an individual, both on and off the field. I am looking forward to working with Herbalife, as a company that shares my passion and brings such expertise and knowledge in the area of sports nutrition," said Ronaldo.
"Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest football players in the world, and someone who embodies our philosophy of good nutrition being at the core of a healthy, active life, and a key advantage in the competitive world of professional sport. His passion and belief will undoubtedly translate into tremendous opportunities for Herbalife and our independent distributors. We love and share his commitment and enthusiasm for this relationship and are excited about the future together," said Michael O. Johnson, chairman and CEO of Herbalife.
"...The world is wearing the Herbalife brand and it is a testament to our products that Herbalife is attracting interest from renowned athletes in Europe and around the world. Our brand has never been stronger than it is today, and we can all be rightly proud of who we are and what we stand for. Go Team Herbalife!", Michael O Johnson, Herbalife's Chief Executive Officer
