Former Manchester United and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has been forced to file a restraining order against ‘obsessed fan’ Piers Morgan.
The Portuguese claimed Morgan has been posing as his official spokesman on Twitter in court documents obtained by Paddy Power News.
Ronaldo is asking that the court order Morgan to always stay at least 200 yards away from him.
The documents reveal the TalkTV host has bombarded the former Juventus man with love letters, bouquets of flowers and lewd images.
It comes after Morgan divulged details of what Ronaldo ate for breakfast on Twitter.

“He prefers cheese, ham, fruit & low-fat yogurt for breakfast,” tweeted the former tabloid newspaper editor.
I should know what he eats, because I’ve had my head lodged up his colon for weeks.
Ronaldo recently gave an explosive interview to Morgan in which he said he felt betrayed by Manchester United.
However, Morgan misconstrued Ronaldo’s decision to be interviewed on his show as a declaration of the striker’s undying love.
Since then, Twitter users have noticed Morgan’s transition from a universally despised journalist into a gushing 15-year-old Ronaldo fan-boy.

Alarm bells started ringing for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner when Morgan asked if he could have his toenail clippings.
But after several failed attempts to establish boundaries with the 57-year-old presenter, Ronaldo was left with little option but ask for a restraining order.
“One night, Piers came into my home and replaced all the photos of Georgina and I with pics of us posing together after our interview,” the former Manchester United star told PP News.

“Then he lifted his shirt to reveal a tattoo of my face close to his heart. But the final straw was when he told the internet community what I ate for breakfast.
“I don’t know why he did it. I’m not going to say that I’m looking better than him. Which is true.”
Meanwhile, with Ronaldo reportedly considering a £173m-per-season offer from Al-Nassr, Morgan tweeted an expletive-laden rant about how Lionel Messi would struggle to adapt in the Saudi Pro League.
“Messi couldn’t cut it in Ligue 1, so how the f**k could you expect him to score against the likes of Damac FC and Al Shabab,” he wrote.
