Behold, Cristiano Ronaldo in all his, um, glory.
Ronaldo unveiled a statue of himself Sunday at his personal museum in his hometown of Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. The bronze Ronaldo statue stands just over 11 feet tall and features the Real Madrid star in a trademark, pre-free-kick stance while wearing very tight shorts, according to the BBC.

Ronaldo, 29, attended the unveiling one day after he helped Real Madrid beat San Lorenzo to win the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup in Morocco.
Ronaldo has scored 34 goals in 27 games for Real Madrid and Portugal this season, making him a good bet to retain the FIFA Ballon d’Or Award, which he won earlier this year. FIFA will announce the winner Jan. 12.
