The famous statue of Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo in his home town of Funchal, Portugal has been left with a rather shiny crotch following years of fondling from overexcited fans.

Following the unveiling of the tribute back in 2014 many questioned the size of the bulge afforded to the then Real Madrid forward - and it has only stood out more as the years have gone on.

As with many famous statues that are made of bronze, oil is transferred from human hands to give the portion of the model that is touched most a shinier appearance.

Unfortunately for the 3.4 meter tall Ronaldo statue, the bulbous crotch is at perfect height for posing visitors - with thousands rubbing the same spot over the years.

The statue is said to weigh in the region of 800 pounds, and was made with an inscription that says Ronaldo is 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."

Ronaldo hasn't got on too well with trophies over the years, with a bust bearing his 'likeness' at Madeira Airport having to be replaced, and an effort in India being criticised.

Back in 2020, a 120kg, 1.87m tall was statue of Ronaldo was sculptured by chocolatier Jorge Cardoso, and it took him over 200 hours to complete.

In addition, a mural for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner following his return to United last year was compared to none other than Eastenders legend Pat Butcher.
