FRANCE footballer Zinedine Zidane’s infamous World Cup final red card headbutt has been immortalised with a statute in Paris.

The bronze artwork – titled ‘Headbutt’ – has been put on display in front of the posh Pompidou Centre.

The sculpture celebrates the moment France striker Zidanne lunged at Italian star Marco Materazzi‘s chest during extra-time in the 2006 World Cup final.

It was made by Algerian artist Adel Abdessemed for an exhibition which will run until January.

Event organiser Alain Michaud said: “This statue goes against the tradition of making statues in honour of certain victories. It is an ode to defeat.”
