Football fans have mocked a bizarre mural of Harry Kane after a photo of it appeared on social media.
The botched painting adorns the wall of a pub in Wembley Park, and it appears to show the England captain celebrating while playing for his country – but his features are a little distorted.
The mural depicts Kane’s visage to have over-extending cheeks while it also drastically reduces the size of his raised arm, rendering his clenched fist to appear more like the end of someone’s foot.
And fans have also not held back in their appraisal of the Kane tribute.

Users on social media platform Reddit have been quick to mock the Harry Kane tribute
The mural depicts the England captain with a raised a arm while representing his country
One Reddit user brutally slammed it as ‘God’s cruellest mistake’, while another posted that Kane’s injury sustained against Manchester City last week ‘was more severe than previously reported’.
The mural follows a pattern of obscurely depicted football stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo’s notorious bust at Madeira airport.
The original design was mercilessly derided by people from across the world, so much so that it developed a cult following.
Madeiran artist Emanuel Santos was tasked with creating the image of Ronaldo and spent three weeks on the project, with the bust unveiled when the airport was renamed in Ronaldo’s honour in March 2017.

The strange work of art, created by Mai Abdel Allah, is supposed to represent Salah as a great example of dedication and determination, and it is said to have taken a month to create the tribute piece.
The sculptor told the Egypt Independent that the statue is ‘opening his arms to the fans’ after scoring goals but one Twitter user questioned why the body what that of ‘an eight-year-old’s’.
