- Cristiano Ronaldo's partner Rodriguez spent time training with Ronaldo during lockdown
- The 26-year-old spent about two months in Madiera training with the forward
- The model said she initially felt ashamed doing so but now appreciates working out with him
Cristiano Ronaldo's partner Georgina Rodriguez she initially felt embarrassed training with the 35-year-old during coronavirus lockdown in Portugal.
The Juventus superstar spent close to seven weeks in his hometown in Madeira after all football activities were shutdown over the ravaging effect of the infection.
Having gotten used to working out with the forward, the 26-year-old has now revealed she is learning her "best teacher."
Georgina claims that the former Real Madrid attacker has become an inspiration to her owing to the numerous sacrifices he makes to keep fit.
The model added that she focuses more on working on her glutes after sharing a post on her Instagram page.
She told a Portuguese magazine: “Initially I was ashamed about working out with Cristiano.
“Imagine having to train in the same space as Cristiano. “I was used to working out at home when he went to train at his club so we could spend more time together when he returned.
“But afterward that feeling went and now I love exercising with him. “He’s become my greatest motivation and inspiration.”
She continued with Women’s Health: “Cristiano trains in the morning and again in the afternoon.
“He’s an elite athlete. It’s incredible how he focuses and devotes himself to his passion for football.
“There’s no doubt he trains more and better than me. There’s just no comparison. He’s a professional athlete.
“But I have the best teacher at home and every day I learn something new with him. “When it comes to fitness, Cristiano beats me by a stack of goals.”
Georgina also admitted in the interview for the magazine, which put a stunning photo of the model on its front cover, that the first month of the coronavirus crisis had left her feeling “frightened and demotivated.”

The winger found the back of the net twice in the first half of the meeting before Sami Khedira increased the tally just before the break.
Gonzalo Higuain, Angel Di Maria and Casemiro grabbed a goal each to wrap up the victory on a high for the Spanish League giants.
However, one of the major highlights of the match was when a free-kick from Ronaldo narrowly crossed the bars straight into the midst of Bournemouth fans at the back of the post.
