Lionel Messi fans would do some pretty hard work to do that. That’s some feat on Cristiano Ronaldo’s part. 

A group of astronomers have discovered one of the oldest known galaxies in the universe and named it after Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo. The honour was bestowed on him by the European Southern Observatory (ESO.)

The newly-christened CR7 galaxy has been described as “by far the brightest galaxy yet found in the early Universe.”‎ The lead astronomer, who hails from Ronaldo’s native Portugal, cited Cristiano as inspiration for the galaxy’s name.
