Renowned psychologist Jordan Peterson revealed that he was contacted by the Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo about two weeks ago.
The visit had been recorded on Ronaldo’s Instagram account in a photograph he shared.

Peterson revealed to journalist Piers Morgan in an interview that a friend of the athlete sent him videos of his talks and that he started reading his books, so he decided to invite him to the United Kingdom.
