Internet has a field day with Cristiano Ronaldo's new bust


Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the most popular soccer players in the world, was celebrated on Wednesday when the airport on his home island in Portugal was renamed in his honor.

Part of the rebranding ceremony for Cristiano Ronaldo Madeira International Airport involved revealing a bust that had been sculpted in the star athlete's likeness outside the terminal.

At least... it was supposed to be in his likeness.

The less-than-stellar resemblance the bust has to Ronaldo was not lost on Twitter users, and the topic quickly became trending on the site.

Some noticed more striking resemblances to other notable people, like Eric Trump or young New York Knicks stud Kristaps Porzingis, while others simply saw this as a great time to show off their Photoshop skills:

This isn't the first time a questionable likeness of an athlete or celebrity has gone viral. In 2015, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was the subject of an unsavory courtroom sketch during proceedings for the Deflategate scandal.

Even Ronaldo himself has fallen victim to a similar incident once before when a full-body statue with some curiously tight shorts was unveiled in 2014.

At least we still have the real Ronaldo around to remind us that he is, in fact, a good-looking dude.
