With the European Football Championship 2024 in full swing,Madame Tussauds Amsterdam, part of the global entertainment group Merlin Entertainments, unveils a new international football icon. Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the greatest footballers of all time, gets his own place in the attraction. Ronaldo has turned out to be a 'selfie prey' this European Championship. Fans run onto the football field for a selfie, but from now on they can go to Amsterdam in peace and quiet for a photo with the football icon.The wax figure is a tribute to Ronaldo's impressive sporting career as a top footballer. Ronaldo has previously appeared at other international Madame Tussauds venues, such as New York, London, Bangkok and Dubai. Madame Tussauds Amsterdam is proud to announce that its wax figure can also be admired in our capital from Wednesday 26 June!

Born on February 5, 1985 on the Portuguese island of Madeira, Cristiano Ronaldo has had a professional football career full of highlights. His passion and talent have made him an international phenomenon in the world of football. Ronaldo has won multiple Ballon d'Or titles, Champions League victories, and numerous national championships to his name. In addition, he has set several records, including being the first player to score 100 goals in the UEFA Champions League and becoming the all-time top scorer for Portugal.

The wax figure of Ronaldo wears his Portuguese football kit, including his iconic number 7 and captain's armband, as he wears during his football matches for the national team. Since Ronaldo doesn't wear jewelry during football matches, like his well-known diamond earring, the wax figure doesn't have jewelry either. Underneath his football kit, Ronaldo's wax figure wears the Nike Air Zoom Mercurial Superfly IX Elite SG-PRO AC Ready football boots.

Madame Tussauds has made several wax figures of the top footballer over the years, which can be seen in various locations such as London, Bangkok, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Istanbul. The wax figure of Ronaldo will be placed in Amsterdam among other sports legends such as footballers Virgil van Dijk, Johan Cruijff and Lionel Messi, skaters Jutta Leerdam and Sven Kramer and boxing legend Rico Verhoeven.
