The football star also broke down in tears after a footage of his father was shown

Edna Carina Emanuel Caldas, who served football icon Cristiano Ronaldo free hamburgers as a child, has finally come forward after the footballer appealed to meet her during an interview.

The 36-year-old woman came forward after Ronaldo’s appeal to find three mystery McDonald’s employees, during an ITV interview with British journalist Piers Morgan, reports Mirror UK.

During the interview, the Juventus striker recalled how he, with his teammates of his boyhood club Sporting Lisbon, would knock on the door of a McDonald’s, next to the stadium.

One of the best players of all time, Ronaldo also invited the trio to Turin or Lisbon to have dinner with him if they were ever found.

He said, he and his friends were given food by Edna and “two other girls” whom he never found again.

Ronaldo also opened up about his personal life and upbringing at the interview.

Caldas told a Portuguese sports daily that she is happy and it just shows how humble Ronaldo is.

She said: “I’m no one really for him to remember me like that.”

She added: “This was something that all happened such a long time ago. I’m really happy at what he’s gone on to become. I never thought he would remember me after so many years.

“It shows how wonderful he is that he hasn’t forgotten about small things like this from his past.”

She said, at the time, a friendship grew between them and they had gone for coffee once.

The Portuguese star also broke down during the interview when Morgan showed him footage of his late father speaking proudly to the press about his son's achievements, reports Business Insider.

Ronaldo was seen wiping away tears, and said: "I never saw the video. Sorry. ”

He also opened up about his relationship with Georgina Rodriguez.

Ronaldo felt "embarrassed" in front of his family after he was accused of raping Kathryn Mayorga, a budding model at the time, in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009, which he repeatedly denied.
