The Portuguese soccer legend has been isolating over the past ten days, ever since contracting the coronavirus on international duty with Portugal.

Unable to play for his Italian club Juventus, the 35-year-old has been keeping busy in other ways – among them, shaving his head!

He shared a clip on Instagram showing him dancing and singing on an exercise bike, but it was Ronaldo's new buzz cut that drew the most attention from his 241 million followers.

Cristiano Ronaldo's buzz cut not the only obstacle to overcome

"Success in life is not measured by what you achieve, but by the obstacles you overcome," he wrote in his post, which showed him putting miles in on his bike.

The world-famous athlete doesn't seem to have suffered many symptoms and looks to be in prime and peak condition, despite his infection.

No one knows why Cristiano Ronaldo's buzz cut was necessary, nor why he got it. Perhaps it was just another one of those obstacles he wrote about, perhaps it's something he has been wanting to do for a while and now finally has the time for.

Cristiano Ronaldo's buzz cut ain't his first "new look"

Meanwhile, his friends and fans and friends have been sharing their adoration of Cristiano Ronaldo's new buzz cut look. He has had many interesting hairstyles over the years, and that's something many have been commenting on.

"You look good, King," fellow Portuguese player José Semedo commented. Another user wrote "Classy."

Cristiano Ronaldo's buzz cut isn't the first time that he has become a trendsetter for his looks and hair. Recently, he went from sporting a man-bun to a more conservative cut, via a curly top.

Despite his new buzz cut, Cristiano Ronaldo keeps testing positive for Covid-19

Ronaldo reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 again on Wednesday, so will have to remain in isolation for quite a while yet.

Sadly, this means that he will likely miss out on Wednesday's Champions League match against FC Barcelona and his old rival Lionel Messi.
