Brazilian football legend Ronaldo has shown off his new, slimmer physique through a picture on Twitter, following a diet plan from a stint in a reality TV show.

Ronaldo, who gained weight rapidly after retiring from football, looked lean and fit in the Twitter post as he was during his zenith during which he scored over 400 goals, the Daily Mail reports.

Ronaldo turned to reality television to help him lose weight as he featured in a popular show called Fantastico on the Brazilian TV channel Globo.

Ronaldo was named FIFA World Player of the Year on three occasions and won the Golden Boot award at the 1998 World Cup in France. (ANI)
