Cristiano Ronaldo displays his muscular physique in small swimshorts as he holidays on a luxury yacht in Ibiza with son Cristiano Jr, five, and mother Delores, 61

He went through a range of emotions during the European Championship final, from tears of despair as he was carried off injured in the 25th minute, to sheer joy at raising the trophy aloft following Eder's winning goal.

And Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, is recovering from the night of high drama in the best possible way, by holidaying in Ibiza with his family.

Joining the Portuguese superstar was his mum Delores and son Cristiano Jr, and the family frolicked in the sun on the back of a luxury yacht, on Wednesday.

The Real Madrid ace showed off his famously athletic physique in a pair of tiny fluorescent green shorts as he soaked up the sun at the rear of the vessel.

Delores, 61, opted for a bright pink bikini and was spotted cooling off on the platform using the yacht's on-deck shower facility.

After helping his mum rinse herself down, Cristiano climbed down into sea for a dip, swimming beside the yacht's dinghy.

Cristiano Jr, five, wore turquoise swimshorts and gently lowered himself into the sea using the platform ladder to join his dad in the water.

Back onboard, Ronaldo made his way to the comfy decking area where he reclined and soaked up some rays, his rippling abs on show. 

The three-time Ballon d'Or winner was given a rapturous reception, along with team-mates, by supporters when they landed in Lisbon, on Monday, with the Henri Delaunay Trophy, but Portugal's captain swiftly departed to celebrate with his nearest and dearest.

'Travel with family,' he wrote on Instagram on Tuesday morning as he uploaded a picture of himself and six other family members jetting off to the White Isle.

Ronaldo suffered a first-half knee injury in the final at the Stade de France after clashing with France playmaker Dmitri Payet. He was forced from the field in tears after initially trying to carry on through the pain.

But by the end of 120 minutes of tight action with few clear-cut chances, it was Ronaldo and the men in red who were celebrating as France had to suffer the pain of losing in front of their own fans due to Eder's extra-time strike.

Speaking after their success, teammate Ricardo Quaresma spoke of his admiration for Ronaldo.

'Even with the injury [Ronaldo] never stopped, he always supported the team and that's why I say, not just as a friend, that he is the only person I admire in football. I admire the strength he has,' Quaresma, who replaced Ronaldo, told O Jogo.

'We have a great captain, it is an honour to play alongside him and have him in the national team and all Portuguese people should be proud to have Cristiano.

'[His critics] speak of him and do not know him as a person. He is a great person, a great captain and he deserves everything he has achieved in football. He always has confidence and is positive and that's what he gave us.'
