Cristiano Ronaldo's strict eating habits are already rubbing off on his new Manchester United teammates.

That's according to goalkeeper Lee Grant, who says the rest of the squad are too scared to eat dessert in front of the 36-year-old superstar.

"Usually on a Friday night you've got a few cheat stuff out," Grant, who is United's fourth choice keeper, told TalkSPORT. "You've got some apple crumble or you've got a bit of brownie and cream or what not.

"I tell you now, not one player touched the apple crumble and custard, not one player went up for that brownie because everybody was sat down and one of the lads said to me: 'What has Cristiano got on his plate?'

"So we were having a little [look] at what he has got and obviously it is the cleanest, most healthy plate you can imagine.

"And it just cracked me up how not one single player dared get up and have that junk food that was laid out."

Ronaldo is renowned for following an extremely strict and healthy diet.

According to ESPNFC, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner and eats up to six meals and take five naps in a single "typical" day.

He is known to start his days with ham and cheese and a side of yogurt for breakfast, before brunching on avocado toast.

He then typically eats two lunches and two dinners to fuel the rest of his day. Ronaldo's first lunch of chicken and salad is often followed by fish with salad, eggs, and olives.

In the evening, he'll then either stick with fish - swordfish, tuna, or cod - or switches to some type of meat.

According to his former personal chef, Ronaldo also loves to eat black rice, and to have his food cooked in coconut oil. He doesn't drink alcohol, and famously abhors fizzy drinks like Coca-Cola.

Back in June, Insider tried to follow the Portuguese star's diet for a week. The verdict? "Unaffordable, boring, and extremely time consuming."
