Real Madrid insures Ronaldo's legs

Sometimes the stories write themselves. This, I think, falls into that category.

Spanish soccer giant Real Madrid has insured the legs of its newest signing, Cristiano Ronaldo, for about $142 million.

Not sure what the policy entails, or what his teammates now think about their obviously less-valuable legs, but that's how it goes with footie royalty I guess...
The 24-year old recently picked up a knock and the injury to his knee was quickly assessed by club doctors, who gave the player the all-clear.
And now with every scratch and bruise to the legs, Madrid gets reimbursement for the cold spray and band-aids...
