Cristiano Ronaldo has another new statue and fans are divided

Cristiano Ronaldo has been the subject of another statue - and fans have had differing opinions on it.

The Al Nassr star has had a number of statues made of him over the years, with some certainly better than others.

Of course, many will remember the infamous statue of Ronaldo that was unveiled at Madeira Airport in 2017, which some believed looked more like Liverpool cult hero John Arne Riise.

A statue of the football icon was unveiled outside his personal museum in 2013 - but we can't really pick out who it actually looks like.

Anyway, the latest monument created as tribute to Ronaldo has been revealed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as part of another museum dedicated to his legacy.

And the 38-year-old and his brother were in attendance to present and take photos with the statue, which features Ronaldo in full Al Nassr kit.

You can see the statue below.

The statue features a different hairstyle to the one the forward currently has, and appears to more accurately depict an early career Ronaldo rather than his current appearance.

Fans had differing opinions on the statue.

Taking to X (Twitter), one wrote: "Ronaldo and his brother with Christian Ronald."

Another said: "It looks more like Messi than him at first glance."

A third added: "They mixed Tom Brady with CR7's face."

But others praised the statue, with one fan writing: "Much better than the last one."

Another said: "Ngl the statue is pretty good."

And a third appreciated the old-school touch, writing: "They took Sporting Lisbon Cristiano and placed him in an Al-Nassr jersey."

On the pitch, Ronaldo has had a superb season for Al Nassr thus far, scoring 15 goals in 13 Saudi Pro League games.

He netted a brace during his side's 3-0 win over Al Akhdoud on Friday, solidifying Al Nassr's spot in second place in the table.
