"Cristiano, Georgina and their eldest son, Cristiano Jr, arrived at 8pm. And there I said to myself, 'What now?'
"So I made Cristiano sit in the emergency table, but time passed and nobody got up. Cristiano did not bat an eyelid and Georgina and her son like him.

"I can assure you that I have seen people far less famous than him leave after five minutes, and with arrogance, in such situations.
"He, on the other hand, waited for his table for almost forty minutes."
