Famous soccer player and handsome person Cristiano Ronaldo had an airport in his hometown renamed in his honor Wednesday, the Telegraph reports.

That's good. Not so good (or handsome) was the bronze bust unveiled outside the newly minted Cristiano Ronaldo Madeira International Airport in Portugal.

The bust, supposedly a likeness of Ronaldo, more closely resembles a "soul-stealing bronze demon," as BuzzFeed puts it.

Deadspin warns the statue "may be imbued with dark magic."

And Bleacher Report rounds up the Twitter takes, which range from people editing the bust into scenes from horror movies to pointing out its uncanny resemblance to Sloth from "The Goonies."
