Mo Salah is no stranger to tributes. The superstar footballer’s accolades run high, and they’re only growing more and more illustrious. Salah is now the first Egyptian to get his own waxwork model at London’s iconic museum, Madame Tussauds. 

After the Mai Abdallah-sculpted statue fiasco that occurred in 2018, concerns over his wax figure are warranted. But not to worry, the Liverpool striker seems to be in good hands this time around. 

Salah took to Twitter to make the announcement. He posted a video with a caption reading “Tick tock”, where he’s seen having his measurements taken, down to every hair strand. 

The museum then quickly retweeted, writing “The Egyptian King is coming to Madame Tussauds London!”. 

Salah, who is dubbed the “Egyptian King” by his fans around the globe, joins the ranks of Beyoncé, Einstein, and Kanye West, all of who’s life-size wax figures are showcased at the museum.
