Liverpool's Mo Salah to be immortalised at Madame Tussauds
It's been a meteoric rise over the past few years for Mo Salah, who was seen as surplus to requirements at his first Premier League club.
A couple of good loan spells in the Serie A, first with Fiorentina, and then with Roma, and the Egyptian winger quickly became a star of the Italian league with Roma.
Nobody could've expected Salah to do what he did in his first season at the club, a phenomenal haul of 44 goals in 52 games in his first season catapulted the 'Egyptian King' to superstardom at Anfield.
He is no - quite rightly - ranked as one of the greatest players in world football, having scored a further 42 goals over the last season and a half and can now call himself a World and European Champion.
But whilst individual honours are no new thing to Mo since he arrived at the club, being immortalised at Madame Tussauds is quite a... different honour, for sure.
Due to be unveiled later in 2020, Salah will become the first Eqyptian footballer to have his likeness displayed at the waxworks museum and only the second, since Steven Gerrard had his own model 10 years ago.
Salah had this to say on the news that his model will be displayed: "I am so excited to be working with the artists of Madame Tussauds on my first ever figure."
