Cristiano Ronaldo mourning death of his uncle as sisters pay emotional tribute on Instagram

CRISTIANO RONALDO is mourning the death of an uncle.

The Juventus superstar's sisters Katia and Elma Aveiro both paid tribute to their late family member in emotional statements on Instagram.

A post shared by Elma Aveiro (@elma_oficial)

Katia, who lives in Brazil, wrote: “I didn’t expect news like this. Today my heart is in mourning and now just memories are left.

“Rest in peace my dear uncle. I will remember our good moments together.

“I thought I was going to see you again, to laugh with you, to give you a hug again.”

The unnamed uncle has been described as a brother of Cristiano’s mum Dolores Aveiro – who suffered her own health scare last year.

The 66-year-old was rushed to hospital on March 3, 2020, in her native island of Madeira after suffering an ischemic stroke.

Meanwhile, the Juventus forward’s dad Dinis Aveiro died from liver failure in 2005.

Cristiano has yet to make any comment.

Elma wrote alongside a black rose on her Instagram: “It’s always sad to receive this news.

“I know we all have to depart some time, some soon than others.

“Rest in peace uncle.”

It is not yet clear how old their uncle was and what he died from.
