Madeira, an Atlantic Island nation has named the airport located in its capital Funchal as Aeroporto Cristiano Ronaldo
This was done in order to honour the football great who was grown up over there. The news came after Portugal losing to Sweden in a friendly match on Tuesday by 2-3 despite Ronaldo scoring an early goal. Though many did not agree for renaming the airport, he was conferred the National Hero status last year after he has led Portugal in winning European Championship.
Ronaldo was accompanied by his girlfriend Georgina Rodrigues and Mother Maria for the event.
