The Madame Tussauds wax museum in London is creating two Mo Farah figures for its locations in London and Blackpool.
According to Madame Tussads, the British track and field World Champion will be striking his trademark “Mobot” pose.
“Work is well underway on both figures, which are being be created individually by separate teams of sculptors and artists based in London,” the museum states on it’s website. “Mo has been heavily involved in the creation process giving a sitting for the studios team before starting his Marathon training in earnest.”
Mo commented: “I saw Usain Bolt’s wax figure at the Anniversary Games last year and couldn’t believe how brilliant it was. I said then that I’d love one of my own and I’m so excited that it’s now really happening. I cannot wait to meet both of my doubles!”
“Since the 2012 Olympics, Mo has become a real national treasure, which I’m sure will be even more apparent by the time he’s competed in the London Marathon this year,” says Nicole Fenner, PR Manager at Madame Tussauds London. “The figure will be portrayed in a fun pose that we’re sure our guests will love to emulate and provide a real tribute to a such a popular sportsman.”
