Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

LONDON: Madame Tus­sauds in London un­veiled a wax­work of Por­tu­gal foot­baller Cris­tiano Ron­aldo to co­in­cide with the start of the World Cup.

The wax­work de­picts the world’s most ex­pen­sive player wear­ing the new Por­tu­gal strip as he strikes his distinc- tive pre-free kick pose.

The mu­seum said the fig­ure took four months to cre­ate and cost around £150 000 pounds (R1.7 mil­lion).

“We have been over­whelmed with pub­lic re­quests to fea­ture Cris­tiano Ron­aldo,” a spokesman said.
