‘RONALDO might have been named Fifa World Player Of The Year on three occasions, have a World Cup winner’s medal, a Golden Boot, a European Cup winner’s medal and be a UN Goodwill Ambassador, but in Hello!’s eyes his greatest claim to fame is that he is ‘David Beckham’s team-mate’.

But Milene is happy to slip on a bikini and speak for the first time about their separation and her hopes of finding new love.

‘Next time I’m going to take some time to get to know the person,’ the 24-year-old says. ‘Because when you’re head over heels in love, you can’t think straight.’

And with that she slipped a well-thumbed photo out of her bikini bottoms, gazed longingly at the blond-haired footballer depicted thereon and sighed…’
