Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo makes classy gesture to volcano eruption victims
Manchester United and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has made a classy gesture to help victims of a recent volcano eruption.
La Palma volcano
The volcano would erupt on the Spanish island of La Palma back in September of this year, causing severe devastation.
As reported by BBC News:
Lava flowed down the mountain and through villages after the crack opened in the Cumbre Vieja volcano on 19 September, throwing jets of lava and ash into the air.
The red-hot liquid rock destroyed everything in its path – empty villages, schools and hundreds of homes – before reaching the sea 10 days later.
It is believed more than 6,000 people had to be evacuated.
