Portuguese football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was in town over the weekend, signing autographs, promoting products and apparently making the weather totally unbearable.
The Real Madrid star’s first stop in Shanghai was, of course, the Nike Store on Huaihai Lu. But he wasn’t the only one. “Seems a few people got here before me,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.

Later on, he stopped by The Peninsula hotel for an obligatory rooftop photo shoot.
On Saturday, he dropped by the Shanghai Stadium for a match between Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou Evergrande where he explained to fans that actually he was to blame for this week’s insanely high temperatures.

Then, on Sunday, he moved on to Beijing where he continued to do more Nike-related activities.
Until next time, Ronaldo. But how about coming in winter?
