Cristiano Ronaldo has been sculpted again – this time, in chocolate.
The Juventus star does not have a proud history in sculpture, with his bronze headshot at Madeira airport going viral.
But Swiss chocolatier Jorge Cardoso has made something far more tasty.
The five-time Ballon D’Or winner has been depicted in a 120kg model entirely out of the sweet substance at full-scale.
Cardoso made Ronaldo entirely in his spare time, taking 200 hours to complete it.
The sculpture shows Ronaldo smiling widely in his Portuguese national shirt.
White chocolate has even been used for the shirt number as well as the Nike tick on his boots.

No detail is missed by the chocolatier, with shin pads and UEFA badges also included.
"After all these years of experiments, I wanted to try again and make a larger, more realistic sculpture," Cardoso said to Portugal Resident .
"This sculpture was made in my own free time. It is a personal project that I really wanted to pursue. I studied everything in detail to make it look as realistic as possible.
"Apart from being Portuguese, I am a fan. He is where he is thanks to his hard work, effort and dedication."
