Cristiano Ronaldo statue’s penis becoming ‘worn out’ because of so many fans holding it

The monument is said to weigh around 800 pounds and bears an inscription proclaiming Ronaldo to be the ‘BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD.’

Ronaldo said of the statue at the time: “Where I grew up, where I have my roots and my family.

“It is a great privilege to be back with the Madeiran people who also am.”

The Sun quote a tourist as saying: “I just wanted a picture of him to send to my family.

“But as soon as I put on the family WhatsApp group everyone started laughing.

“They couldn’t help notice the well-rubbed area between his legs.”

Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo from the Real Madrid poses beneath a statue of himself during the unveling ceremony in his hometown in Funchal on December 21, 2014.

Over the years, Ronaldo has had a rocky relationship with trophies, with a bust depicting his ‘likeness’ at Madeira Airport having to be replaced and an effort in India being panned.

Chocolateier Jorge Cardoso sculpted a 120kg, 1.87m tall statue of Ronaldo in 2020, which took him over 200 hours to finish.

In addition, a painting commemorating the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s return to United last year was compared to none other than Pat Butcher of Eastenders fame.
