And Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, is recovering from the night of high drama in the best possible way, by holidaying in Ibiza with his family.Joining the Portuguese superstar was his mum Delores and son Cristiano Jr, and the family frolicked in the sun on the back of a luxury yacht, on Wednesday.

Delores, 61, opted for a bright pink bikini and was spotted cooling off on the platform using the yacht's on-deck shower facility.After helping his mum rinse herself down, Cristiano climbed down into sea for a dip, swimming beside the yacht's dinghy.
Cristiano Jr, five, wore turquoise swimshorts and gently lowered himself into the sea using the platform ladder to join his dad in the water.
