Real Madrid and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo opened up a museum in his honour on Sunday in his hometown of Funchal on the island of Madeira.
With a lifesize wax figure of the pacey forward dominating the main room the musuem boasts some 125 individual and team awards dating back to his Madeira childhood.
Included in the collection is a top scorers award from his first club and two shiny Golden Boots won as Europe’s top scorer.
There’s still room for plenty more though and one could come on January 13 when FIFA announce the winner of the Ballon D’or – a trophy Ronaldo won in 2008.
This time he’s up against fellow finalists Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery.
Talking about the reasons for opening the museum the 28-year old said: “I did not make this museum based on what I will win in the future but yes on what I have already achieved. That is a given proof and what I won is here and no one will take it away from here. It’s something I want to share with my fans.”
