Cristiano Ronaldo has stars named after him

Cristiano Ronaldo has had a galaxy of stars named after him.

The Real Madrid soccer star is already among the world's best-paid athletes and he's now able to turn his head skywards to see the newly-christened CR7 galaxy, which is a reference to his shirt number.

The European Southern Observatory said it is "by far the brightest galaxy yet found in the early Universe".

Ronaldo, 30 - a three-time World Footballer of the Year - already has his own line of underwear, as well as a museum in his honour.
