A married mum-of-two has come forward as one of the McDonald's workers who gave Cristiano Ronaldo free burgers when he used to beg for food as a child.


The Juventus superstar launched an appeal to find the mystery employees - including one called Edna during an ITV interview with Piers Morgan.

And after days of searching, Paula Leca came forward to say she was one of the three women, and would happily accept a dinner invite from the star footballer.

She told Portuguese radio station Renascenca: “They would appear in front of the restaurant and when there were hamburgers left over our manager would give us permission to hand them over.

“One of the boys was Cristiano Ronaldo who was perhaps the most timid of them all.

“This happened almost every night each week.


“I still laugh about it all now. I had already told my son about it but he thought it was a fib because he couldn't imagine his mum ever giving Ronaldo a hamburger.

“My husband already knew about it, because sometimes he would go to pick me up from work at night and he also saw him.

“It's funny to go back now to something that happened so long ago. It shows his humility. At least now people know this wasn't an invention.

“If he invited me out for dinner, I'd go for sure.

"The first thing I'd do would be to say thank you and during the meal we would have time to remember those times.”

One of the coworkers would be there looking down on the poor boys coming to beg for hamburger every night, not know one of them was a star waiting to shine.

If they were not giving out the left over to the boys, the boys would still find alternative to relieve their hunger and survive. Do you know what? This kind of news won’t come up. If it came up, it wouldn’t be for this same woman, any other person that gave the gestures then would take the glory today.

Moral
Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping him up.

Wao, so soon, a new chapter is about to be opened for them. May people remember us for good abeg.

Aunty, you didn't talk about your colleagues but only yourself. Hope you weren't the one that reluctantly gave him the hamburger saying "see a hunger don make am lanky finish"

Take this to bed this night: always be kind and giving.

No one knows tommorow.
