Ronaldo's name was launched at Madeira Airport

Ronaldo's name was launched at Madeira Airport, the island of his hometown in honor of the World Player of the Year award and Portugal's first-ever European Cup champion.

Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo, 32, said at a ceremony attended by Portuguese President Marcelo Ribello de Souza and Prime Minister Antonio Costa that "seeing this airport with my name is something very special ... Everyone knows I am proud of my roots."

"I did not ask for this, but I am not a hypocrite and I admit that it is an honor and makes me happy," Ronaldo said in a brief speech to his family and some 5,000 fans.

Ronaldo was honored in his former hometown of Funchal by setting up a museum and a bronze statue of him.
