His iconic goal celebration was to kiss his wedding ring every time he found the net.
A homage to his wife Mamen Sanz, who he married in 1999.
Raul has four sons and a daughter.
We fully expect at least one of them to be running out in the red of Spain one day.
From Spain to Qatar, Germany to the US, Raul has won trophies everywhere he’s went.
Six La Liga titles, three Champions League trophies, The DFB-Pokal, Qatar Stars League and last night’s Soccerbowl.
He’s even grabbed some individual achievements along the way, including a runners-up prize for the 2001 Ballon d’Or and a bronze for FIFA World Player of the Year.
Just sit back and enjoy the master at work with these videos.
