Cristiano blessed with new statue that looks nothing like him.
Portugal and Real Madrid soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo was recently honored at Aeroporto da Madeira in Portugal, an airport that has officially been renamed "Aeroporto Internacional da Madeira, Cristiano Ronaldo” as a tribute to the island's favorite son.
In celebration of his very own airport, a new Cristiano Ronaldo statue was unveiled today as well. Unfortunately, it looks nothing like the four-time Ballon d'Or winner and the gruesome statue has overshadowed the momentous occasion.
Here's what twitter had to say about Ronaldo's bronze bust.
