Cristiano Ronaldo has a new statue.

Good news: this one actually looks like him. A little...

The world chuckled a lot little when a bust of Ronaldo was unveiled at Funchal Airport (now known as Cristiano Ronaldo airport) on his home island of Madeira earlier this year due to the gold bust looking nothing like Ronaldo.

However, a new statue was unveiled at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as Real Madrid’s legendary striker was immortalized at Real’s home.

Below are photos of the previous bust (on the left) and the new bust (on the right). Renowned Spanish sculptor Jose Antonio Navarro Arteaga is responsible for the new Ronaldo bust.

Like Ronaldo, it is a beauty.
