Cristiano Ronaldo announces the death of his newborn son

Cristiano Ronaldo family said thank you Liverpool fans for their sign of support towards the Manchester United Striker and his partner after the tragic death of their young son.

Anfield fans chanted “You’ll Never Walk Alone” in the seventh minute of Tuesday night’s league game between the two teams, joining fans of their bitter rivals in an impeccably respected minute of applause.

Cristiano’s sister Elma, who lives in Madeira, showed her emotions overnight by posting footage of the gesture on her social media and writing: “Thank you for that Liverpool. We will never forget what you did today.” She ended her message with a heart emoticon.

Sibling Katia, posting from her home in Brazil, captioned “way beyond soccer” to her own video set against the chorus of “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” The sisters and their mother, Dolores Aveiro, also showed that they put their trust in God to help them overcome the tragic loss that has afflicted the family.

Dolores wrote about her, citing a well-known verse from the Bible that has helped many people through difficult times Instagram in Portuguese: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge him all your way, and he will direct your paths.”

That Portugal international and his 28-year-old partner Georgina Rodriguez announced Monday night that one of their twins had died. They said in a heartbreaking statement: “It is with our deepest sadness that we must announce that our little boy has passed away.

“It’s the greatest pain a parent can feel. Only the birth of our little girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.

“We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support. We are all devastated by this loss and kindly request privacy at this very difficult time. Our little boy, you are our angel. We will always love you.”

The couple announced last October that they were expecting twins and Spain’s Georgina revealed she is expecting a boy and a girl in a touching video with her daughter Alana Martina, four, and Cristiano’s three children Eva, Mateo and Cristiano Jr.

The United striker did not feature due to the tragedy in Tuesday night’s game. A Liverpool fan account Facebook suggested holding a minute of applause for Ronaldo and his family before the game. They urged the other fans to clap in the seventh minute – a nod to Ronaldo’s No. 7 shirt.

The post read: “If you’re lucky enough to attend the game, please show Ronaldo and his family a mark of respect by joining the round of applause, which will take place at the seventh minute. Rivalries should be put aside in heartbreaking circumstances like these. You will never walk alone, CR7 Jr.”

Liverpool manager Jürgen KloppHe described the applause afterwards, whose team won 4-0, as the “moment of the game”. He said in a post-match press conference: “My moment of the game was the seventh minute when the whole stadium showed pure class, so many things in life are much more important than football. We feel for Cristiano and his family.”
