Cristiano Ronaldo is believed to be close to signing a deal with Facebook Watch - which could earn him $10 million (about R135m) - for his own 13-part series.

The programme, which will be produced by Tom Brady's Religion of Sports media company, will focus on the sportsman's personal life - including his rumoured engagement to his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and how they raise their children - and his impressive sporting career, according to Variety.

The Real Madrid player should have no issue letting the cameras into his home as he's always been very open about what's going on in his life and announced that he was a father again just hours after Georgina gave birth to their daughter Alana. 

And during an interview with Chinese TV, he said: "Cristiano Jr. [his son] is very happy. He's doing well and says he wants more brothers and sisters. He wants seven, the magic number, and I think that's good."

Ronaldo is set to help create a brand new animated series called 'Striker Force 7'.

I t was widely reported in May that the 33-year-old professional soccer star has teamed up with leading graphic novel and animations producer Graphic India and VMS Communications, a mobile digital marketing company, to launch the new entertainment property which will stretch across the realms of animation, comics, publishing, gaming and digital content.

Speaking in a statement, Cristiano said: "I have always been a fan of superheroes and I'm thrilled to help to create this new animated series. In the same way football connects cultures and people around the world, I believe great animated characters and heroes can do the same and that's why I am excited to bring together these passions of football and superheroes through this project and share it with my fans."
