Cristiano Ronaldo has joined the Ice Bucket Challenge, after stripping down to his boxers after a Real Madrid training sesion to be covered with cold water.

Former Manchester United team-mate Darren Fletcher had called on Ronaldo to take part. The Portuguese accepted the challenge, and posted the proof on social networks.

Ronaldo was soaked by Los Blancos team-mate Fabio Coentrao while sitting on a chair wearing just a pair of boxer shorts. The Portuguese star then challenged musicians Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Lil Wayne.

Ronaldo had soaked Real Madrid’s left-back Marcelo, who also joined James McCarthy Foundation’s challenge, which aims to raise awareness regarding Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates came up with this idea, after his promising career ended due to ALS. He challenged a few friends, including some Boston Red Sox Players, and the game soon became viral.

Celebrities from all around the world have soaked themselves in ice cold water, including Marck Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Justin Timberlake.

In the last few days, the challenge has spread to football. Ronaldo and Marcelo have been the latest, but the Brazilian has already nominated Barcelona’s Neymar.
