There have been plenty of examples where turning a footballer into a statue hasn't quite worked out and a sculpture of George Best has drawn awful reviews after being unveiled on Wednesday.

A statue of the legend has been erected outside Windsor Park in Belfast and was presented by Pat Jennings and Gerry Armstrong on what would have been his 73rd birthday.

Best, who made over 350 appearances and scored more than 100 goals for the Red Devils, died in 2005 at the age of 59 and his homeland have now attempted to pay tribute to him.
