Manchester United footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has made a slight change to his first name in order to be more "like the messiah".
The name change to "Christ-I-am-O Ronaldo" is being described by some top sports writers as yet another example of how the Portugese winger's ego has spun dangerously out of control.
It is not the only way in which he has tried to liken himself to Jesus. Famously over the Easter weekend he attempted to crucify himself, only to be saved by Gary Neville who had visited Ronaldo's home dropping off a Cadbury's Flake Easter egg.
Also his goal celebration during a match against Aston Villa saw him race into the crowd and begin to feed members of the Main Stand using only 5 loaves and 2 fish.
He is not without his followers however, a number of Man United players known as the "disciples" are known to follow Ronaldo around Manchester as he offers unsolicited advice to the ill and the dying about how to swerve a free kick.
Carlos Tevez was asked to no longer follow the player on such visits though, after he was found to have given Ronaldo's mobile number to Real Madrid for a sum of 30 silver pieces.
