32 people who look more like Mo Salah statue than Mo Salah

beIN SPORTS

Star Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah is the latest sportsperson to be hideously misrepresented in statue form, joining the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, tennis star Andy Murray and ice hockey legend Wayne Gretszky.

Nice as it sounds to be crafted from metal and etched into the consciousness of generations to come, as Ronaldo will attest, there's always a risk of these monuments to the star going horribly bust. Thankfully another sculptor stepped in and made amends, but not before the first attempt became the laughing stock of the internet.

You be the judge: Just how accurate is Ronaldo's bizarre statue?

Egyptian sculptor Mai Abdel Allah told Al-Ahram her statue was designed to highlight the importance of Salah "both inside Egypt and abroad." Ironically, her point was further proved when the statue went viral, for all the wrong reasons, on social media.

Here are 32 people who look more like the Mohammed Salah statue than the Liverpool star himself.
