When an 11-foot-tall statue was unveiled in front of the main entrance to the Cristiano Ronaldo museum in Funchal, in the international footballer’s native Portugal in 2014, the then-Real Madrid forward responded by saying it was a “very special moment” for him.
Cristiano Ronaldo's notoriously impressive “golden bulge” on his famous statue, erected in his hometown of Funchal, Portugal in 2014, is becoming “worn away” from too much fondling by overexcited fans. The 3.4 meter (11 meters) tall Ronaldo bronze tribute, that stands at the entrance to the museum dedicated to the footballer, who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and captains the Portugal national team, had been ridiculed for the size of its crotch.

However now, the bronze finish on the bulbous protuberance, which is at a height perfect for taking selfies, is being worn away after years of rubbing and grabbing, according to the Sun.
The statue of the player has “apparently been rubbed so much that the bronze finish has worn away,” wrote the outlet. Visitors to the museum of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, who has been called one of the best players of all time, have been marking a bee-line to that particular spot, buffing it up to an extra-shiny state.
The statue by Madeiran artist Ricardo Veloza bears an inscription that says Ronaldo is the 'BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD'. At the time of the unveiling, Ronaldo responded by saying that he was “proud” of being "where I grew up, where I have my roots and my family”.
The Cristiano Ronaldo Museum in Madeira was inaugurated on 15 December 2013 by the athlete’s former club, Sporting CP. It opened in December 2013, boasting more than 130 trophies won by the Portuguese international. The display offers photographs and videos emblematic of the athlete's career, a wax works of Ronaldo, all the youth and professional trophies won by him at the clubs of CF Andorinha, Nacional da Madeira, Sporting CP, Manchester United and Real Madrid, Juventus FC and the Portugal national team.
