Cristiano Ronaldo and partner Georgina leave Novikov restaurant



Cristiano Ronaldo followed up a night at the tennis with a meal at swanky Mayfair restaurant Novikov on Monday night as the Portuguese star continues his visit to London.

Accompanied by girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and son Cristiano Jr, the Juventus forward was pictured leaving the exclusive dining spot, which has both Asian and Italian cuisine.

Earlier in the evening, Ronaldo had watched a commanding performance by Novak Djokovic as he defeated John Isner at the Nitto ATP Finals at the O2 Arena.

Ronaldo even showed his lightning-fast reflexes by taking a one-handed catch above his girlfriend’s head when the ball flew into the crowd.

They later dined at Novikov on Berkeley Street in central London, where premium caviar and oysters feature on the menu.

There are two restaurants inside, one serving Asian food such as dim sum, Wagyu sirloin and Peking duck, the other offering Italian favourites including pasta and seafood.

The exclusive bar next door boasts an extensive wine and champagne list, including rare magnums costing as much as £5,250-a-bottle.

With the resumption of international football this week, Ronaldo has the opportunity to take a breather as he hasn’t been called into the Portugal squad for their matches against Italy and Poland in the UEFA Nations League.

He has taken the opportunity to spend time in London, with him and Georgina dining at Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair on Sunday night.

The 33-year-old, who joined Juventus from Real Madrid in a £100million deal over the summer, has been in sensational form of late.

He has scored nine goals and contributed six assists in 15 matches for his new club, propelling them to the top of Serie A as they chase an eighth consecutive Scudetto.

They currently sit six points clear of Napoli at the top of Serie A after 12 rounds of the season and have only dropped points once.

And despite last week’s 2-1 defeat by Manchester United at the Allianz Stadium, they remain on track to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League as well.
