thumbnail Hello,

The small sculpture is adorned with the signature of the 27-year-old Real Madrid attacker, who spent some time in the small town of Obidos with the Seleccao last May

A small parish in Portugal is auctioning a signed clay statue of Cristiano Ronaldo to raise funds for the construction of a new church.

According to EFE, the sculpture is approximately 30 inches high, weighs just over a kilo and was signed by the Real Madrid attacker while he was staying in the small town of Obidos with the Seleccao last May.

The bidding will begin at €100 but the Gaeiras Parish will immediately accept any offer of €500 for the piece, which is up for auction online.

Ronaldo is currently on international duty with Portugal at Euro 2012 and on Thursday evening scored the only goal of the game as Paulo Bento's side booked their place in the semi-finals with a 1-0 win over Czech Republic.
