Brazilian footballer Ronaldo lost out in a head-to-head poker match against Rafa Nadal, which saw the tennis player earn $50,000 for his charity and the former soccer star left doing the washing up.
The 38-year-old former footballer came unstuck against the Spanish tennis star during a head-to-head match on the PokerStars table in London’s Hippodrome Casino last night (18.11.14), which saw Nadal walk away with $50,000 for his charity, the Rafa Nadal Foundation.
A source told BANG Showbiz: “The only thing that came close to being in a room with two of the biggest sporting legends of all time was the food served up at the event.
“The best thing of all according to guests, however, was perhaps Ronaldo’s forfeit for losing the game – he was officially given the boot by being tasked with washing up Nadal’s Spanish feast.”
Nadal organised for his favourite Spanish restaurant, Cambio De Tercio, to cater the event and the eatery treated guests to a selection of tasty treats including eight-hour roasted tomatoes with basil caviar, Iberico ham croquettes with thyme tomato jus and chorizo of Spanish Wagyu beef.
