Cristiano Ronaldo has had the Airport in his hometown of Madeira, the Madeira International Airport named after him. It is now called Aeroporto Cristiano Ronaldo. A new sign with the Portuguese’s face and name has been placed on the front of the airport.
Reacting to the huge honour, the La Liga star said, “Seeing my name being given to this airport is something very special, everyone knows that I am proud of my country and my country. I know some people do not agree, but I am not a hypocrite and I assume that some are here right now. We all have the right to have an opinion. I always prefer people who voice their positions to those who hide behind them.”
