Cristiano Ronaldo is no stranger to vanity, and the World Player of the Year has now been photographed alongside a melon carved to look like the Portuguese superstar.

In preparation for the World Cup, a Brazilian chef took it upon himself to use watermelons as a canvas to carve out sculptures of the biggest names that would be showcasing their talent in the finals – with Ronaldo his piece de resistance.

Pictures of Rogerio Holanda’s creative cantaloupes went viral, so much so that even Cristiano Ronaldo caught eye of the ‘art’.

Upon Portugal’s arrival in Manaus ahead of their clash with the USA, Ronaldo posed with a photo of the chef’s creation and posted it on his personal Twitter account.
