Not only is Cristiano Ronaldo the world’s most famous athlete, he’s also one of the most handsome. He’s secure enough to know that having a man purse definitely does not make you look unmanly and he even opened a museum… about himself… Some might call him arrogant, but there is no denying his incredible footballing talent.
In his hometown of Funchal, Ronaldo is obviously considered a hero and to honor him, the city decided to rename their local airport to “the Cristiano Ronaldo Madeira International Airport.” The ceremony was going well, until they unveiled a bronze bust of the famous footballer that sparked quite the conversation. People weren’t sure if they should be horrified or laugh at the startling statue. Fortunately, it didn’t take long for the internet to respond with countless memes that will likely outlive the legacy of Ronaldo himself!
