Cristiano Ronaldo's waxwork unveiled at Madame Tussauds London
The life-like statue of the Real Madrid star was unveiled in Madame Tussauds London on Wednesday as part of the build-up to the World Cup.

Ronaldo, whose move from Manchester United to the Spanish giants last summer gave him the accolade of the world's most expensive player, donated a Portugal training kit for his wax figure to wear.

The £150,000 figure was created after the Portuguese winger sat with sculptors in December last year.

"The World Cup is one of the biggest events in the sporting calendar so it’s fitting we’re welcoming one of soccer’s most exciting talents to the attraction to mark the occasion," said Liz Edwards, the museum's spokeswoman.

"2010 is definitely a football crazy year here at Madame Tussauds. We have been overwhelmed with public requests to feature Cristiano Ronaldo and he will join the attraction hot on the heels of fellow international star, Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard, who joined the attraction in February."

The 25-year-old joins fellow footballers Gerrard, Pelé and David Beckham at the events venue.
