It’s definitely bigger than Messi’s.

From his astounding footwork on the field to his chiseled cheekbones, it’s an understatement to say that Cristiano Ronaldo has been blessed with many gifts. But Ronaldo’s most natural gift was on glaring display on Sunday, when a statue of the famous footballer was unveiled in his hometown of Funchal, Portugal.

Proud indeed! Portugal’s prodigal son’s prominent package has now been immortalized in bronze. It will welcome visitors to the CR7 museum, which is dedicated to the athlete’s career. But Ronaldo’s massive bulge did not go unnoticed. Twitter had some fascinating reactions to the ten-foot-tall erection.
