LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo has unveiled a statue of himself on his home island of Madeira in Portugal.

Ronaldo calls the larger-than-life bronze statue “prettier than me,” according to Spanish news agency Europa Press.

The 29-year-old Real Madrid forward helped the Spanish team win the Club World Cup in Morocco on Saturday.

Ronaldo already has a museum dedicated to his career on Madeira.
