However, a paper-made statue of the 34-year-old is set to go on floor at the Viareggio carnival this year.

Carnevale di Viareggio is a carnival event annually held in the Tuscan city of Viareggio, in Italy. It is considered to be the renowned festival celebration in both Italy and Europe. This year, it celebrates its 146th anniversary and it is set to take place from February 1.

Among the paper-made statues, which would be rolled out in a wagon at the parade, there are statues of some high-profile people including the Swedish activist Greta Thunberg and USA president Donald Trump.

In the Idols of the moment section, Cristiano Ronaldo’s paper-made effigy will also take part in the Viareggio Parade.

It is true that the 34-year-old is an idol for millions of people around the world.

Ronaldo is a player who keeps improving each day and he seems to be in phenomenal form in the new year. In the four games that he has played this month, the talisman has scored 7 goals, including a hat-trick against Cagliari to begin the new decade.

After performing below his standards in the first half of the season, Ronaldo has made a tremendous come back lately. He would be aiming for the Champions League trophy with Juventus this season.
