CRISTIANO RONALDO and Lionel Messi are just two sports stars to be honoured with waxworks at Madame Tussauds in Dubai.

The life-size wax replica museum chain opened its doors to the public on Thursday at Bluewaters Island with over 60 high-profile celebrities on display.

Lionel Messi also has a wax figure at Bluewaters Island on display for the public

The figures were created over a six-month period by 20 artists at the London studio.

Incredibly, each individual strand of human hair was implanted using needles, and thankfully for Ronaldo, this time his statue resembles the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

The Manchester United striker, 36, knows all about statue fails after his bronze bust at Madeira Airport was ridiculed online.

And this ice sculpture also drew criticism after being shown to the public before the 2018 World Cup.

However, he is wearing the WRONG SHIRT with the Portuguese icon draped in former club Juventus' colours rather than United's red.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Messi also may not be happy with his statue.

Looking like his eFootball avatar, the Argentine ace's waxwork is wearing the PSG kit with a ball at his feet.

Other sporting icons to have their own waxworks include David Beckham, Conor McGregor, Virat Kohli and Lewis Hamilton.

Fans were split on the likeness of Ronaldo and Messi's figures, as one user commented: "Actually quite good."

Another said: "Ronaldo n Messi look nothing like that."
