The footballer was presented with the statue at a renaming ceremony in Madeira airport.
Cristiano Ronaldo was presented with a questionable statue of himself in Portugal today and its ruffled a few feathers.
The Portuguese footballer was honoured at Portugal's newly rebranded Madeira airport, which is now named Aeroporto Cristiano Ronaldo, but he was upstaged by a questionable looking statue.
Naturally the bust hit more of a bum note, with people comparing it to everything from the Art Attack man puppet to a that dodgy Ecce Homo restoration.
See the best reactions to the statue here:
