Ronaldo Has A New Statue. And Something Is In Its Pocket (Or It Is Pretty Excited To See You).

Cristiano Ronaldo's new statue has a massive bulge. Oh, and also, it looks nothing like him.

Cristiano Ronaldo is from Madeira, a little island off of the coast of Portugal and it is not surprising that his persona is probably the biggest export to come from the petite island. The Real Madrid goal-scoring machine (who has 25 goals in 15 La Liga matches) has a museum dedicated to his likeness on the island, and this past weekend they added another memento to honor the Portuguese star: A statue.  

Except there are two problems with this statue.

#1: It looks nothing like Cristiano Ronaldo:

The face of Cristiano Ronaldo's new statue is not a great likeness.

#2: The statue is sporting what looks to be the early stages of an erection:

We don’t know if Cristiano was involved in the statue making process, but whoever sculpted his likeness must have spent more time below the belt than above it. The facial features don’t resemble CR7 at all and we have no idea who made the decision to give the statue tight shorts. But we do know that this was Ronaldo’s reaction when he saw the statue. 

The reveal of the statue also set Twitter buzzing with some great reactions.
