Cr7 on his vocationDecember 23, 2014
After a brilliant year with Real Madrid and a tough World Cup campaign with Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo is making the most of his time away from football.
The superstar is currently enjoying La Liga’s two-week winter break after helping Los Blancos win the Club World Cup in Morocco.
And, after travelling home to Madeira to see a new statue of himself unveiled on Monday, the 29-year-old is now putting his feet up ahead of a return to action against Valencia on January 4.
Ronaldo shared an image of himself on Instagram wearing face paint with son Cristiano Jnr and model girlfriend Irina Shayk.
Alongside the photo, the former Manchester United man wrote: ‘Nice to relax and have some fun on some days off.’
Unlike Premier League players, Ronaldo and La Liga’s other stars will be free to enjoy Christmas Day, with no fixtures scheduled until January 3.
After winning the Club World Cup with Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo flew to his home town in Madeira to unveil this new bronze statue of himself. Some of you may have noticed certain exaggerated anatomical details on the body of it.
Well, the photographer definitely did anyway, because there is no way these photos are shot at these particular angles by accident.
Clearly, the enlarged fold on the shorts you see before your eyes has rather unfortunately and unintentionally created the illusion that Ronaldo was either doing a Spinal Tap during modelling sessions for the statue, or needs urgent medical attention. Either way, just like Michelangelo’s David, true art is that because it always elicits a response from those who witness it. The main difference here is that this probably wasn’t meant to happen.
Concerned residents of Madeira need not worry, as back up plans to divert attention from Ronaldo’s schlong are already in place:
