Uncanny Resemblance! Griezmann Joins Wax Museum’s Heroic Figures (Photo)
French star Antoine Griezmann, striker for Atlético Madrid, joined the heroes of the Wax Museum in Griffin, the most popular tourist destination in the capital Paris, on Monday.
The statue of the French star was designed wearing a national team jersey and smiling while making the typical thumb and little finger gesture with both hands, just to show that everything is going well or after a goal has been scored.
In statements to the Spanish media next to his figure in the museum, Griezmann jokingly said: “I am very happy. It’s a little strange to see yourself like this. This is the perfect job. I’m proud to be here.”
The 31-year-old man attended the ceremony to present his identity, accompanied by his parents, wife and three children.
Thus, the Atlético Madrid player joins 250 wax figures in this museum, which also features other legends of the game such as Pelé, Zinedine Zidane, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappé.
Coincidentally, the first player whose identity ended up in the museum was also the Madrid team player, Moroccan-born Frenchman Larbi Ben Mubarak in 1947, who married Rocky Blanco in La Liga in 1950 and 1951.
