It’s common knowledge that, especially in football circles, you ain’t nobody until somebody makes an odd, ill-proportioned statue of you.

Finally, Luis Suarez has joined those hallowed ranks after it was ordained last year that a tribute to the Uruguayan city of Salto’s most famous son be plonked in the middle of the pavement in honour of his continuing service to the national team.

The result… is truly breathtaking…

Here it is in all its glory – all 5ft 9in of it…
