Cristiano Ronaldo played a significant part in Manchester United's 2-0 victory over Villarreal on Tuesday, which booked the Reds' place in the knockout stage of the Champions League, yet he was secure in the knowledge that his family were being protected by a twin-team of bodyguards who served in Afghanistan.
Ronaldo and his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, announced that they are expecting two more children in the near future, which has led the Portuguese international to make a decision to maximise the safety of his family.
A new wave of robberies and crime in the Manchester area of late have concerned the former Real Madrid star, and is intent on keeping his family away from similar situations.
The Sun posted a story detailing the identities of Ronaldo's newest security detail, and they are twins from Portugal who served in Afghanistan.
Sergio and Jorge Ramalheiro were both part of an elite special forces unit in Afghanistan during the height of the war there after 2003.
After leaving the army, both signed up to become part of the Portuguese police unit which was in charge of guarding politicians and judges.
Now though, the twins, who are identical, are working closely with Ronaldo being with him at all times to ensure he is safe.
