Helder Batista, a fan of Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo, rode a bicycle for 45 days over 5,100 kilometers to Moscow to support his country’s national team.
"There were storms, more in Germany, where hail was raining down the whole time, but in the end I overcame it thinking of the family, my wife and son in Portugal, my brother and sister-in-law and nieces, all my friends in Portugal. I thought of them during bad moments,” he said during a short break outside Moscow’s Bolshoi theatre. "I think of the children of the charity I am supporting, which I want to help, and you keep peddling, even when you don't feel like it, you just keep peddling,” the Portuguese football fan added.
After the short break, he will head for Kratovo, where the Portuguese team is based.
