Cristiano Ronaldo opens a museum to himself in his hometown

What do you do when you're one of the best footballers the world has ever seen? Open a museum in your own honour, of course

This Sunday, Cristiano Ronaldo hosted an opening ceremony for a museum in his hometown of Funchal, in Madeira. The Portuguese was present to lend his support because it was a museum dedicated to him, and filled with plenty of his shiny trophies, signed kits and footballs, as well as dodgy-looking wax works.

During the opening ceremony, the assembled media were very curious about a few other trophies that he could add to the collection, most notably La décima with Real Madrid and a certain golden coloured ball that a diminuitive Argentine has won a lot in the last few years. Ronaldo simply replied that if it arrived, he would make space for it.

There's also plenty of scope for a trophy with his national team (we're sure he'd be hoping for the World Cup) as well as more to add to the three titles he's won in his time at Real. JOE knows where we're headed on holidays next year anyway.
