There are a few things in life that scream “I made it!” Flying first class on Emirates, having more bathrooms that bedrooms in your house, and, arguably the biggest indicator of all… having a waxwork model of yourself at Madame Tussauds.

This week Mohamed Salah revealed that he will be preserved within the walls of London’s famous wax museum. This will make him the first Egyptian footballer to have a wax figure in Madame Tussauds.

The Liverpool striker tweeted a video showing a sneak peek of the process, along with the caption “Tick tock.” In the clip Salah can be seen with the waxwork team, having measurements taken, posing for 3D imaging, and having his hair colour-matched.

And the Madame Tussauds team are clearly excited, retweeting the video from the official account saying, “The Egyptian king is coming to Madame Tussauds London!"

Speaking of the imminent arrival, the museums general manager Steve Davies said, “As Egyptian Forward and currently both European and World Club Champion with Liverpool FC, Mohamed Salah is a global star at the peak of his power. We know that fans will love seeing him at the home of celebrity, where he rightly belongs.”
