Barcelona Legend Andres Iniesta Honored With NAKED Statue

Andres Iniesta has been honoured with a naked statue by his country, Spain for his World Cup-winning goal.

But not all is at it seems because clothes will eventually be added to the Barcelona legend.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Spain’s Jules Rimet victory in South Africa.

Iniesta was the hero that night against Holland in Johannesburg.

The midfield maestro struck four minutes from the end of extra-time to secure Spain’s second major trophy in a row before they defended the Euros two years later.

Iniesta’s hometown of Albacete have honoured their most famous son – but with one key component missing.
The statue is a mirror image of his position as he struck the winner that night.

It’s just missing his kit.
Locals were to celebrate the unveiling of the statue on July 10 but restrictions imposed by coronavirus have forced it to be delayed until next year.
A representative for Albacete’s town hall confirmed the final version will be complete with clothes.
They said: “The image is not of the final work of the sculpture, but of a sketch in clay, before being cast in bronze.

“In the final sculpture, the athlete will appear wearing his sporting kit.”
