Despite Being Injured, Cristiano Ronaldo Enjoys a Holiday in Ibiza

Cristiano Ronaldo wouldn't let a nagging injury keep him from enjoying the summer.

The soccer star is still healing from the left knee ailment he suffered in Portugal's Euro 2016 final defeat of France, but he took some time to soak in the rays and go swimming in Ibiza without a brace this week.

According to reports, Ronaldo also visited a clinic for hyperbaric oxygen therapy to speed recovery which will see him miss all of his club's preseason schedule, including the UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla in Trondheim on Aug. 9.

In a previous video on Instagram, he said, "I will come back much stronger. Thank you, long live Portugal!"

His latest post, however, drew over 2.2 million likes for reasons beyond soccer.
