The Juventus star is on coronavirus lockdown with his family in Madeira and said he was "feeling thankful" to have his mum back by his side.

Dolores Aveiro, 65, was discharged on March 21 nearly two weeks after medics at Madeira's Nelio Mendonca Hospital saved her life.

And her football star son is clearly pleased she is on the road to recovery.

He uploaded the snap of the two of them with his sisters Elma and Katia alongside the caption: "Feeling very thankful to have my mum home from hospital and recovering.

"Look after your family and loved ones. #stayhomesavelives."

Mum-of-four Dolores was originally transferred to a private hospital in the island capital.

Dolores was rushed to hospital on March 3 after suffering an ischemic stroke, caused by a blood clot that blocks or plugs a blood vessel in the brain.

She said in an emotional Instagram post two days after her health scare she was "recovering well" and revealed she had suffered no lasting effects.

Local reports initially said she could not have any contact with Cristiano, 35, or her grandchildren because of the coronavirus crisis.

But her Juventus star son visited her but wore protective clothing including a face mask and gloves.

Last night it emerged Ronaldo agreed to take a £3.5million wage cut to ensure Juventus can pay their staff during the coronavirus outbreak.

He also donated five ventilators to hospitals in Portugual to help combat the deadly disease, while also splashing out £8.5m on a limited Bugatti.

Cristiano's girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez was pictured shopping in Funchal last week while he remained home in isolation.
