Cristiano Ronaldo on Burj Khalifa: Dubai Globe Soccer Gala Awards 2021

The 12th Edition of the Globe Soccer Gala Awards took place on December 28th in Dubai and Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe, and Robert Lewandowski bagging awards on the night.

And before the award ceremonies, the entire Burj Khalifa building showed an image of Cristiano Ronaldo in his honour. The Manchester United striker featured in a Juventus shirt and the 163-floor tall, 828m building gave a fitting representation for the larger-than-life image Cristiano Ronaldo has built for himself.

Cristiano Ronaldo took home the Top Best goalscorer of all-time Award at the ceremony after breaking the record for scoring the most official goals in football history earlier this year.
