Football legend Bobby Moore has returned to the site where he played for most of his career, West Ham’s Boleyn Ground in Upton Park, as a waxwork figure.

The life-like waxwork figure of the icon was unveiled in front of the Bobby Moore Stand by Madame Tussauds London dressed in vintage England kit, holding a replica of the Jules Rimet Cup.

His creation was the result of a hotly contested public vote last year, with Bobby Moore taking more than 90 per cent of a Madame Tussauds London poll to determine which footballing great should be honoured at the world famous attraction in time for this year’s FIFA World Cup.

Roberta Moore, Bobby Moore’s daughter, is already planning a trip to Madame Tussauds London to see the figure first hand.
