Paging Mr M. Al Fayed. This fantastic statue of Carlos ‘El Pibe’ Valderrama outside the football stadium in his hometown of Santa Marta, Colombia is a lesson in carrying off hero worship with a dash of panache

I can’t believe this 22-foot tall bronze beauty has never invaded my consciousness before. It’s mind-warpingly glorious, and I absolutely love the use of Super Noodles for hair – lends the whole thing a really authentic look.

What a player he was by the way…
