Well, Cristiano Ronaldo was certainly excited to see this impressive bronze statue of himself erected in his hometown over the weekend.
The Real Madrid footballer beamed as he posed, thumbs up, next to the 3.4 metre bronze monument of himself, lovingly crafted in what he no doubt perceives to be his own likeness.
“This is a very special moment, to have a statue of me,” he said at the grand unveiling in Funchal on the island of Madeira.
The statue will make up part of Ronaldo’s personal museum.
The exhibition space will apparently host numerous awards he’s earned over the years, including his two Ballon D'Or titles, among other pieces of memorabilia.
He is currently the favourite to score the 2014 accolade, given to those voted the world’s finest player, in January.Reuse content
