Emanuel Santos, or better known as the artist who sculpted the infamous Cristiano Ronaldo bust at Madeira Airport back in March, has now turned his attention to Ronaldo's teammate and Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, ahead of this Saturday's UEFA Champions League final in Bale's native home of Cardiff.

Bale, who will be the sole Welsh representative in this weekend's final with Juventus, will now have his own bust by Santos after Paddy Power commissioned the artist to try and replicate the work he did on Ronaldo with Bale.

The results look disturbingly similar with Paddy Power claiming that Santos spent 264 total man hours sculpting the Bale bust, which reportedly included a whole day of looking up images of the Welsh star on Google Images.

The betting company also claim that an independent art gallery has valued the Bale Bust at £25,000, although they failed to mention what art gallery that was who did the estimation, with that figure seemingly more than generous.
