CRISTIANO RONALDO has turned his spectacular aerial kick into a work of art in Swarovski crystals.
Ronaldo, 33, received the wonderful gift of his own football artwork during last season’s Champions League.
It shows the former Real Madrid striker in midair as he unleashed the strike past then-Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon in April.
The goal helped Los Blancos pass Juve in the quarter-finals as they won the competition for the third year in a row under Zinedine Zidane.
Moreover, the stunning finish, which came from a cross from Dani Carvajal, was named UEFA Goal of the Season – even beating Gareth Bale’s effort in the final against Liverpool.
Artist Mauricio Benitez – otherwise known as Mr Bling – traveled to Turin to personally deliver the coin to the star, who joined Juventus this summer.
On his Instagram, Mr Bling posted a photo with him and Ronaldo with the caption: “Thank you @Cristiano for believing in my talent, we are moving forward from the hand of God.”
This isn’t the first time Benitez has portrayed Portugal’s ace in crystals – he’s already done designs with Ronaldo shooting, celebrating and as Superman.
And the artist also uploaded a photo of the Juventus forward in October wielding a signed Champions League shirt from this season.
Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Hulk and Lionel Messi are some of the most prominent footballers to be crystallized by the Colombian, who also made the Kardashians and many other celebrities.
Ronaldo has been in great shape for the old lady since her £ 99million transfer this summer, scoring 11 goals and assisting six in 16 Serie A appearances.
The only game he missed was the home game against Young Boys in the Champions League after he was sent off against Valencia.
Still undefeated in the league and already eight points clear at the top, Juventus face Roma at the Allianz Stadium on Saturday night when Cryst-iano hope to emulate their sensational overhead kick again.
