MANCHESTER UNITED ace Cristiano Ronaldo was all smiles despite a tough weekend as he worked up a sweat in his sauna.
The 37-year-old is recovering after featuring in United's dismal showing in a 1-0 defeat at Everton.
But on Monday, Ronaldo posted the steamy, smiley snap to his Instagram story.
It is a much needed break for the Man Utd star after his outburst in the aftermath of the Everton disaster seemingly resulted in a 14-year-old fan's phone being broken.
Ronaldo has since apologised and invited the Evertonian to Old Trafford to watch a game.
He said: "It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments such as the one we are facing.

"Nevertheless, we always have to be respectful, patient and set the example for all the youngsters who love the beautiful game.
"I would like to apologise for my outburst and, if possible, I would like to invite this supporter to watch a game at Old Trafford as a sign of fair play and sportsmanship."
SunSport have revealed that Man Utd club bosses are happy with the ace's apology and are no longer investigating.
However, Merseyside Police are still looking into the incident.

In a statement, they said: “We can confirm that they’re carrying out an investigating following an incident at the #EVEMAN match at Goodison involving a player as they were walking off the pitch and will be speaking to all parties involved.”
Sarah Kelly, mother of the boy, has also spoke out after her son allegedly came away with a bruise.
She told The Liverpool Echo: "At full-time the Man United players started walking off. We were in the Park End so we were right by the tunnel where they came walking past – my son was there videoing them all.
"He filmed all the United players walking through. And then he lowered his phone because Ronaldo had pulled down his sock and his leg was bleeding. He lowered his phone to see what it was – he didn’t even speak.
"Ronaldo then just walked past, with a terrible, terrible temper and smashed the phone out of my son’s hand and carried on walking."
She added: "You can see by the bruise that he’s made contact. I just can’t believe I’m talking about it."
