Mumbai: Ballon d’Or, astronomical salary, various endorsement deals and unmatchable fan adulation, Cristiano Ronaldo has it all. But if that was not enough, now he can add one more honour to his never-ending list as it is reported that the University of British Columbia Okanagan is now offering a course on Ronaldo.
The star footballer will be the main subject of fourth-year sociology course at the University.
As told to The Telegraph by the Associate Professor Luis Aguiar, "Ronaldo is the center and every discussion, class meeting revolves around Ronaldo initially. And then we explore, we broaden out to larger themes. So it starts with Ronaldo but Ronaldo is almost like a springboard to talk about larger issues that are much more sociologically significant than just a biography of Ronaldo."
It is also reported that one of the modules in the course will be ‘The Commodification of Cristiano Ronaldo’.
However, the Real Madrid superstar may not be aware of it. "I don’t know if Ronaldo knows about the course. I haven’t heard from Ronaldo, I haven’t heard from his entourage. I would love to hear from either one, and I would love to have Ronaldo maybe Skyping into the class," concluded Aguiar.
