"Praça de Ronaldo"

Residents living near the Plaza de Ramales, a quiet square in a western residential area of the Spanish capital, awoke one morning recently to find the streets adorned with green and red confetti (the colours of the Portuguese flag) along with an imposing statue of Cristiano Ronaldo, commissioned by a sporting firm.

As reported by Spanish sports daily Marca, the statue of the world’s most expensive player is 10 metres in height and silver in colour, featuring the player standing over a football. The Plaza de Ramales was renamed the ‘Praça de Ronaldo‘ for the duration of the day when the statue was unveiled.
