The emotional moment took place during his revealing interview with Piers Morgan, which is being shown on UK television on Tuesday night.
Ronaldo was shown a film of Jose Dinis Aveiro, an alcoholic who died of liver failure at the age of 52.
In the short clip, Mr Aveiro was seen talking about Ronaldo while stood on his doorstep.
Ronaldo, crying, said: “I never saw the video. I never saw that video. Unbelievable.”
Asked how it felt to hear his father talking of his pride at his son’s achievements, the former Manchester United and Real
Madrid star added:
“Yes, a lot.
“I think the interview would be funny, but I didn’t expect to cry. But I never saw these images. I don’t know where you… I
have to have these images to show my family.
“But I really don’t know my father 100 per cent. He was a drunk person. I never spoke with him, like a normal conversation. It was hard.”
Ronaldo was just 20 when his father died and missed many of the biggest moments of his career.
