Football fans have been questioning the resemblance of a statue of Cristiano Ronaldo unveiled on the Portuguese island of Madeira.
Many on social media say the work looks more like former Republic of Ireland captain Niall Quinn than Ronaldo.
The statue was revealed at a ceremony to name the island’s airport after him.
Portugal’s president and the prime minister flew to the island to unveil the tribute to the player outside the terminal entrance.
President Rebelo de Sousa said Ronaldo “projects Madeira and Portugal across the world far more than anybody else”.
The 32-year-old is a local hero in Madeira, where he is seen as a rags-to-riches success. He already has a museum about him in his hometown of Funchal.
The player later said on Twitter: “Happy and honored to have my name given to the Madeira airport!”
Take a look around Ronaldo’s house.
Ronaldo is not the first footballer to have an airport named after him. Belfast airport was named after former Manchester United player George Best in 2006, a year after he died.
A pilot project to test the strength and purity of recreational drugs was launched in Berlin on Thursday, a spokeswoman said.
Recreational drugs are chemical substances taken for enjoyment, or leisure purposes, rather than for medical reasons.
They can lead to addiction, to health and social problems and to crime; most are illegal.
The “drug-checking’’ project aims to provide one official location where drugs such as ecstasy can be chemically analysed, according to the spokeswoman for the Berlin Senate Department for Health, Care and Equality.
The city’s administration has been considering such a move for some time to protect clubbers from tainted or particularly powerful drugs.
According to the health administration, the aim is to obtain as much accurate information as possible about the ingredients in the drugs and their dosages and to publicise the results.
The project will receive $34,000 (30,000 euros) of funding in 2018 and 120,000 euros in 2019.
It is being run by organisations in Berlin working in the areas of drugs and addiction.
However, there remain some legal issues to iron out before the project is rolled out.
Because of the legal situation in Germany, Berlin needs special permission from the Federal Institute for Medicines and Medical Products.
In other countries like Switzerland, drug-checking has been around for years.
There, online warnings are issued when high-dose pills are in circulation, for example.
A survey commissioned by the Berlin Senate showed that partygoers in Berlin are widely using drugs such as cannabis, amphetamines and ecstasy.
India on Wednesday unveiled the world’s tallest statue in the western state of Gujurat in celebration of her unity.
Towering at 182 metres, the Statue of Unity is a tribute to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, a hero of India’s freedom struggle and the country’s first deputy prime minister.
Patel, a Gujarati, was known as the ‘Iron man of India’ as he went about persuading all the princely states to join the Indian union after independence from British rule in 1947.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who also hails from Gujarat, dedicated Patel’s statue to the people of India on the 142th birth anniversary of the statesman’s birth.
The record-breaking monument, which towers over the Narmada River, was built at a cost of 29.89 billion rupees (430 million dollars).
Based on award-winning sculptor Ram Sutar’s creation, the statue was built by engineering firm Larsen and Toubro.
The bronze statue, which depicts Patel wearing the traditional Indian attire of a dhoti and a shawl, took 33 months to build and involved 250 engineers and 3400 workers, according to the Press Information Bureau of India.
“To build this statue, [hundreds of thousands) of farmers from all over India came together to donate their tools, portions of their soil and a mass movement developed around the statue,” Modi said in his speech.
Thousands of policemen guarded the venue during the inauguration, as local tribal people have been holding protests in recent months claiming the project had destroyed natural resources, the Times of India newspaper reported.
The 128-metre Spring Temple Buddha in China had previously held the record for tallest statue.
