Atletico Madrid star Luis Suarez buys 1,000 Big Macs and raises £4,300 in McDonald's charity event
ATLETICO MADRID star Luis Suarez has placed an order for a whopping 1,000 Big Macs.
But rather than feeling greedy, the huge burger order was to raise £4,300 in a McDonald's charity event in his native Uruguay.
Every year, the fast-food chain put on the event for the Ronald McDonald House Association charity.
Last year, former Premier League star Carlos Tevez donated 1,000 burgers to the cause in his native Argentina.
And in 2020, Suarez got his teeth into the charity bash all the way from Madrid.
Despite not being in his native Uruguay, Suarez was able to order £4,300-worth of burgers through the McDelivery app.
The ex-Liverpool and Barcelona star bought 1,000 Big Macs at £4.30 each to contribute.
The proceeds went to the children of a youth football league in Pando – a city 20 miles from Uruguayan capital, Montevideo.
The Ronald McDonald House Association helps over 7,000 needy families each year in Uruguay alone.
The charity provides food and accommodation, while also giving support to pregnant women and those in need of medical treatment
After the new Atletico Madrid hero's monster donation, McDonald's Uruguay tweeted: "Luis Suarez proved that the Big Day has no frontiers.
"He bought 1,000 Big Macs from Spain via McDelivery to help the House Ronald, Liceo Impulso and donate to Pando's BabyLeague.
"Thank you, Luis, for putting the jersey on the Big Day! Anyone can join in wherever you are."
Another local hero, ex-Inter Milan star Alvaro Recoba, took part in the event.
