Cristiano Ronaldo, named the Best Portuguese Athlete Abroad in 2012

Cristiano Ronaldo has picked up yet another individual honour.

The Real Madrid forward has been given the award of the Best Portuguese Athlete Abroad in 2012, handed out by the Sports Journalists’ Association of Portugal.

Ronaldo’s blistering form, which saw him score 58 goals for Real Madrid last year, combined with his performances at Euro 2012, ensured him the accolade.

The Portuguese’s future at Real Madrid has been in doubt in recent months. Ronaldo’s contract with Los Blancos expires in the summer of 2015 and he has yet to sign an extension to that agreement.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez recently stated his hope that Ronaldo would remain with the Spanish giants for the rest of his career.

However, the forward has been linked with a return to Manchester United, along with switches to Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain.
