Cristianao Ronaldo helped unveil the statue as the airport for the Portuguese island of Maderia was renamed ‘Aeroporto Cristiano Ronaldo’ after the Portuguese island’s most famous son. The bronze bust spawned a host of memes as observers compared the likeness to a number of obscure personalities including Niall Quinn, Paul Konchesky and the talking head from the British TV programme, Art Attack.

      Thank God for Messi, any other time Ronaldo would probably be the best in the world and imagine how unbearable he’d be then.

    That aside, it’s a beautiful island. If you’re 80. Churchill used go there on hols.

    That bust is like mine. Wonky.

      …really beautiful place…but landing and taking off from the tiny airport is as exciting as it gets…

        Ha! I’d forgotten that. WHUMP!
        I’ll definitely go back, though. When I’ve retired.
        Did you go to Reid’s, that old hotel? We had afternoon tea there one day and cocktails looking over the bay on another. Class.

          …stayed in the Cliff Bay close by…no afternoon tea but had gin n’tonic on the veranda…

            We were ages away, up at the very top of that long promenade. One of those Pestana Hotels. Ironically (well, on this thread anyway) they have Cristiano Ronaldo Pestana Hotels with all his branding. Ha. Pure class.

      Madeira reminds me of Glasthule; full of old coffin-dodgers in HH jackets and too much money.

      Trust me: The only Fun there is in the name Funchal.

      As for some footballer or other: who cares?

    Its a very funny sculpture. And the gag will last forever! Well until the robots take over the island in 2039
