A statue of Luis Suarez will be built in his hometown of Salto, Uruguay.

A statue, which has been backed by the Uruguayan Ministry of Tourism and Sport, will be unveiled on Dec. 18.

Media reports say Suarez is delighted with the statue as sculptor Alberto Morales Saravia said the sculpture will show Suarez wearing a Uruguay shirt “with his left arm resting by his side and his right raised with his trademark three fingers celebration with a ball by his foot.”
