Mar 30 2017 by Marjorie Miles
Cristiano Ronaldo had an global airport renamed in his honour on Wednesday but it was a newly unveiled bust of him that soon became a major talking point.
Locally there had been some critics of the decision to rename the airport after a footballer.
Cristiano Ronaldo has unveiled a very questionable bust of himself at a ceremony in Madeira today as the airport was renamed in his honour.
The bust with a goofy grin and uneven eyes were quickly said to look more like Sloth from the movie "The Goonies", instead of the Portuguese star.
Ronaldo was accompanied by his mother Maria Aveiro, his son Cristiano Jr. and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez to the event that was attended by a large crowd mainly consisting of locals.
CRISTIANO RONALDO gave humble thanks to the people of his home town at the official renaming of the Madeira airport.
But nevertheless, the 32-year-old expressed his joy over having the island's airport named after him.
