Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, better known to the sporting community as "Kaka" is an acclaimed Brazilian football star and the world's first sports figure to amass over 12 million followers on Twitter. This attacking midfielder currently represents the iconic Brazilian national team and Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid. He started his playing career at the tender age of eight by turning up for a local club and subsequently had his first taste of professional football with Brazilian giants São Paulo FC. Kaka’s special talents got a global audience during a highly successful six year stint with Italian giants A.C. Milan which culminated with him winning the prestigious Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year awards in 2007. The Brazilian’s wizardry with the football has turned him into one of the richest sportspersons in the world with a net worth well over 100 million USD. Multimillion dollar playing contracts with club giants Real Madrid and A.C.Milan have played a significant part in securing the midfielder’s financial future. MNC’s like Giorgio Armani, Adidas, and Guarana have attempted to tap into Ricardo’s massive fan base spread across the globe by signing him up for several lucrative endorsement deals. Even though Ricardo’s financial success means that he can enjoy all the material comforts of life that has not always been his exclusive focus and a lot of his efforts have gone towards helping out the underprivileged people in society which has culminated in the player being honored as the youngest ambassador for the UN World Food Programme. The footballer regularly donates 10 percent of his income to the church and has tirelessly worked to raise funds for charities like United Nations Development Programme and Goal4Africa. Kaka and his family live in a spacious 1500 square feet mansion in Madrid valued at 7 million Euros. The star loves spending quality time with his wife and kids and frequently embarks on long drives with them in his Audi Q7 car. Ricardo was born in the capital of Brazil in a middle class family and moved to Sao Paolo at a young age where he spent most of his early life. The footballer got the nickname of “Caca” or “Kaka” from his younger brother and interestingly most of the general public and media organizations address him by that moniker. The Brazilian suffered a tragic swimming pool accident at the age of 18 which almost left him paralyzed but miraculously staged a full recovery which helped to strengthen his belief in God. Unusually for a superstar footballer, Kaka has been untainted by any scandal in his personal life and has been happily married to his childhood sweetheart Caroline for the past 7 years. The couple has been blessed with two lovely children.
