Ronaldo unveils statue of himself in Portugal
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.
He says “I never expected to have a statue in my life.”
