Cristiano Ronaldo Has Been Given Another Bust

Cristiano Ronaldo Has Been Given Another Bust

A second head statue of Cristiano Ronaldo has been created.

Back in March, the four-time Ballon d'Or winner had an airport in Madeira named after him, with an event held where fans and guests such as Portugal's Prime Minister watched a ceremony where the airport was officially christened 'Aeroporto Cristiano Ronaldo'.

However, the bust that was officially unveiled to commemorate his achievements looked more like a combination of Raoul Moat and the head from Art Attack, rather than 'CR7'.

And now, a second head statue has been sculptured - this one has been put in Real Madrid's trophy room at the Santiago Bernabeu. According to Spanish outlet El Mundo, the sculpture, which took two weeks to produce, was finished earlier this month and was created by artist Navarro Arteago, whose son Juan was unhappy with the finished product that was completed by Emanuel Santos.

An official ceremony on November 2 was held, but Ronaldo was playing against Tottenham in the Champions League so couldn't be there in person to receive it.

I'm sure you'll agree, this one is a much better portrayal of the Real Madrid superstar than the previous one - even if Mr Santos says Ronaldo was perfectly happy with it.

When the first one came to light, Ronaldo was trolled mercilessly. Here's some of the best Tweets:
