Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo says he has recovered from a muscle strain and is ready to return to action. Ronaldo damaged a hamstring in a La Liga match at Almeria on 23rd November and missed last week's Champions League win over Galatasaray and Saturday's La Liga success against Real Valladolid.

"I no longer have an injury," Ronaldo said at an awards ceremony in Madrid.
