Yesterday, several Portuguese newspapers collected dozens of comments about the bulge on the bronze, life-size statue, which was erected in his honour in the Portuguese city of Funchal near a museum dedicated to the player.

The subject has also gone viral on social media, inspiring Twitter users to launch the hash tag #RonaldoErection for comment. It was also discussed on Ronaldo’s official Facebook page, which published a photo of the player standing next to the statue.

Despite the controversy, Ronaldo, who distanced himself from the subject, published Tuesday photos of himself taken during his vacation with his family.

According to Portuguese media, Ronaldo is in Dubai to spend his Christmas holidays.
