A statue of Cristiano Ronaldo has been making the headlines again, this time after fans have taken a particularly keen interest in a very intimate part of the likeness to the footballing superstar.

The statue, located at the Juventus player’s museum in Funchal, Portugal, is getting many female visitors grabbing its crotch during photo ops.

Check out the pics below: 

The bronze around the statue’s groin has been rubbed so often that it has been polished a lot more than the rest of the statue.

I just wanted a picture of him to send to my family,” tourist John Rodgers said, according to The Sun.

But as soon as I put on the family WhatsApp group everyone started laughing. They couldn’t help notice the well-rubbed area between his legs.

While waiting to get back on the cruise ship I then realised a stream of tourists who were keen to touch that area.

It seemed to make them all smile, particularly a young blonde lady. She couldn’t keep her hands off.”

Public statues are always a terrible idea. 

Especially when people can easily grope them.
