As one of the most recognisable personalities on the planet, a penchant for Cristiano Ronaldo sculptures should come as no surprise.
There is, however, a rather alarming trend emerging within the various designs to have been unveiled around the world.
Russia is the latest nation to have used the Real Madrid and Portugal superstar as inspiration for an elaborate project.
Forming part of the Ledovaya Moskva festival, 40 ice sculptures representing those countries set to take part at the 2018 World Cup have been presented to the public.
Ronaldo’s likeness has, however, already been questioned, with unfavourable comparisons being drawn between his latest model and an infamous bust presented at Madeira airport to the island’s favourite son.
A little bit better than the one in Madeira ... a little bit — Daniel Jenks (@DanielJenks89) January 4, 2018
It's interesting that all of the tributes look like the same person, but none of them look like Cristiano... — Itch (@The_Itch) January 4, 2018
Somehow still better than the statues — Sophie (@sophivy) January 4, 2018
Why do they keep doing this to his face? — Balerion's Flame (@MemphisPKaganda) January 4, 2018
Ronaldo is not the only footballing figure to have seen odd sculptures dedicated to him.
Argentine legend Diego Maradona has been immortalised with a bemusing statue in Kolkata, India.
Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is the subject of a giant monument in Chile, while former Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has recently seen a scary-looking figure erected in his native Ghana.
Sports stars will continue to be favoured by those seeking to provide inspiration and display their creative talent, but Ronaldo must be hoping that he is left alone for a bit after becoming an unwitting figure of fun.
