Mohamed Salah says Madame Tussauds waxwork is ‘a blessing’

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah described his waxwork at Madame Tussauds London as “a blessing”.

The Egyptian met his wax doppelganger in a private viewing at the weekend, beaming as he posed for photos.

Since then he has helped the club win their sixth Champions League trophy along with their first Premier League title.

Salah worked with artists to ensure his waxwork – which stands in the attraction’s Awards Party zone – was accurate, sitting for hundreds of measurements and photographs.

“It’s a blessing to be recognised and immortalised in this way,” he said.

Fans will be able to see the waxwork from October 22 alongside A-list favourites David Beckham, Dame Helen Mirren and Brad Pitt.

Salah’s likeness wears the cream suit he wore on the front cover of GQ Middle East magazine, pointing upwards in recognition of his goal celebration.

“Having Mo so involved in the creation of his figure has been a real pleasure for the whole Madame Tussauds London team.

“We’re sure a lot of people would have expected to see Mo’s figure styled in his Liverpool kit, but we really wanted to mark his international superstar status and he feels right at home in our Awards Party zone.

“We can’t wait to see fans posing alongside Salah for selfies, emulating his classic goal scoring pose.”
