Waxing Lyrical

A statue of England rugby hero Jonny Wilkinson stands proud in London's Trafalgar Square.

The Madame Tussauds waxwork - in his magic boot kicking pose - has been put on the empty fourth plinth on the eve of England's crunch World Cup final match against South Africa in Paris, tomorrow at 8pm GMT

London mayor Ken Livingstone gave the go-ahead for Jonny's arrival, and hopes fans will join in and will England's players to victory.

Thousands of passers-by have stopped to take pictures of the waxwork, which was made in 2004 - three months after Wilkinson kicked England to victory in the last World Cup.

Congratulations to Argentina who beat France 34-10 a few minutes ago in the Rugby World Cup third-place-final
