Real Madrid wizard Cristiano Ronaldo said he was worried by the Egyptian crisis that eventually forced president Hosni Mubarak to resign after relentless demonstrations in the country.

The protests in Egypt erupted on 25 January to demand the removal of Mubarak and his regime and successfully achieved their target on Saturday.

The high command of the Egyptian army took over for a ‘transitional period’ until September’s presidential elections.

In an interview with Spanish radio Cadena SER, Ronaldo said he followed what happened in Egypt.

“When I get home, I have interest in watching news to know what’s happening in the world we live,” the Portuguese forward, who was named World Player of the Year in 2008, said.

When asked what worries him the most, Ronaldo replied “what is happening in Egypt, and what happened in Greece.”

Ronaldo is enjoying a season to remember in the Spanish Primera Liga. He is the competition’s joint top scorer with 24 goals after 22 games.
