Cristiano Ronaldo statue has buffed crotch after being rubbed by keen female fans

A CRISTIANO RONALDO statue has attracted groups of laughing women due its huge, shiny bulge.

The Juventus superstar's larger-than-life tribute was unveiled at his Pestana CR7 hotel in Funchal, Portugal in 2014.

Of course visitors want to get a photo alongside the artwork - but doing so has had unexpected consequences.

The groin area has apparently been rubbed so frequently that the bronze has been polished into a hard-to-miss shine.

Fans were quick to notice the generously-sized bulge in the shorts when the statue was opened to the public.

And now it has become a focal point for selfies, with fans seemingly eager to touch it as they pose for holiday snaps.

Tourist John Rodgers noticed the wear in the private parts - as well as in the hands.

He said: "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.

"While waiting to get back on the cruise ship I then realised a stream of tourists who were keen to touch that area.

"It seemed to make them all smile, particularly a young blonde lady. She couldn't keep her hands off."

Ronaldo is no stranger to his statues deriding ridicule.

The one unveiled at Madeira Airport in 2017 - likened to Niall Quinn and The Head from CITV show Art Attack - was mocked worldwide and replaced with another.

And this ice sculpture also drew criticism after being shown to the public before last summer's World Cup.
