Cristiano Ronaldo is set to be honoured by having his hometown airport named in his honour after Portugal’s Euro 2016 success.
The Real Madrid star joins a host of big names who have had airports named after them, including Manchester United legend George Best and Beatles star John Lennon.
And while its a huge honour to have a transport hub change its name in recognition of your achievements, its not the first time Ronaldo’s success has been marked by his native island of Madeira.
The 31-year-old has already been honoured with a bronze statue of himself, a museum built and a five-star hotel which also bares his name.
As per the Mirror, local governor Miguel Albuquerque confirmed the decision, according to Mundo Deportivo, with the 31-year-old superstar currently back on the island after holidaying in Ibiza.
Ronaldo of course played a fundamental role in Portugal’s victory against France in the final of Euro 2016 as he cheered his side on from the touchline, despite being substituted in the first half due to injury.
