Cristiano Ronaldo had an international airport in Madeira recently renamed after him in his honour. But it was a certain dodgy statue that actually went on to make headlines all over.
The airport on the Altantic Island will now be knwown as 'Aeroporto Cristiano Ronaldo'.
Cristiano Ronaldo, 32, was accompanied to the airport renaming by his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and mother Maria, and heads were turned when a statue with a debatable likeness to the image-conscious Real Madrid forward was unveiled.
Cristiano Ronaldo was then at the receiving end as Twitterati pointed out that the statue actually does not resemble the Real Madrid star footballer. Here are some of the hilarious Twitter memes that followed.
