Ronaldo seemed to be in good spirits as he lapped up the Los Angeles sun

The weather in Los Angeles might be scorching hot right now, but it’s not the only thing sizzling – thanks to the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Real Madrid football star sent pulses racing as he flashed his toned and tanned torso while he was being driven away from a training session yesterday afternoon.

Perching on the back of a golf buggy with an ice pack strapped to his ankle, the Portuguese heartthrob looked ripped to perfection as he showed off his muscular physique in a pair of navy blue shorts.

‘The soccer here is good, but it can be better. If I can help it to be better, soccer here, I can help. I think they are great; they are in a good way. I hope to come here to play one day.’

Ronaldo admitted he hopes to play football in the US one day

It’s back to work for Ronaldo after a summer of sun-soaked holidays.

After Portugal were knocked out of the Euro 2012 Championships, the star jetted to Ibiza with a group of pals, before enjoying lavish breaks in St Tropez and Thailand with his Russian supermodel girlfriend, Irina Shayk.
