Ronaldo Wins ‘Gay Icon’ Award

Manchester United midfielder Cristiano Ronaldo now has another winners’ medal to add to his impressive collection after he was awarded the prestigi...

The Portuguese winger faced stiff competition from celebrities such as Kylie Minogue, Elton John and David Beckham.

Kylie could only manage a second-place finish, while Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli predictably made the top five.

A spokesman for 'gaygolddiggers' said, “Ronaldo’s ripped body, slicked-back hair, shiny white teeth and jewellery swung the votes his way. He looks like any gay man or woman’s dream. What with being Footballer of the Year, scoring 42 goals last season and former girlfriends saying he is talented off the pitch, he seems to have everything going for him.”

No comment has yet been made by Ronaldo on this early bit of success this season, but he will surely want to retain the title when the survey is held again next year.

David Beckham may also seek to improve on a disappointing seventh.

The top ten:

1. Cristiano Ronaldo
2. Kylie Minogue
3. Judy Garland
4. Elton John
5. Liza Minnelli
6. The Village People
7. David Beckham
8. George Michael
9. John Barrowman
10. Paul O'Grady
