Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, star player for both Real Madrid and the Portugal national team, has been having a blast on a superyacht in St. Tropez with a bunch of equally buff pals. Not a bad distraction while his supermodel ex, Irina Shayk, moves on. The 30-year-old superstar athlete split with the stunning model a few months back after a five year romance, and the Russian bombshell is now reportedly dating Bradley Cooper. But Ronaldo has been all smiles aboard the 111-foot Lionchase yacht, owned by British Topshop billionaire Sir Philip Green. The open-styled vessel was built by Italy’s Overmarine Mangusta in 2008 and is one of the fastest yachts in its class, in the world. Powered by twin 2,772hp diesel engines mated to twin waterjets, it can reach a top speed of 37 knots (42.5mph).
The Mirror reports that Ronaldo and friends have been sunbathing, working out and enjoying the water toys aboard the stylish yacht with Green, his daughter Chloe and his wife Tina. He also made an excursion to shore to visit Saint-Tropez's exclusive nightclub Le Quai. The Lionchase is often used by Green, worth an estimated $5 billion, as a support vessel for his even larger yacht, the 206-foot Benetti-built Lionheart. Green has loaned Lionchase out to celebrity pals in the past. Last year Leo DiCaprio and German model Toni Garrn holidayed aboard the vessel on a trip to Ibiza and in 2011 Green lent the boat to his close friend and business associate Kate Moss on her honeymoon with rock star Jamie Hince.
