“Only the birth of our baby girl gives us strength to live this this moment with some hope and happiness.

“We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support. We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time.

“Our baby boy, you are our angel. We will always love you.”

Messages of consolation have flooded in from across the world following Ronaldo's announcement.
