Football star Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly donated $7 million to Save the Children in order to help aid efforts in Nepal following the devastating earthquake that left more than 8.000 people dead.

The claims made by a French football magazine known as So Foot could not be independently verified.

In an attempt to verify the claims, British media reported that Save the Children's UK office said they were looking into the matter but had no official confirmation that a contribution had been made by the footballer.

Following the Nepal disaster, the 30-year-old had posted a message on his personal Facebook page calling on his followers to donate to the charity.

According to Forbes, the Portuguese superstar is worth an estimated $250 million.

Ronaldo has previously carried out other charitable acts, including flying to the aid of Indonesian tsunami victims in 2004.
