VIDEO: John Motson lookalike sculpture in Naples Cathedral

Uncanny stone resemblance of commentator.


A John Motson lookalike stone bust has been seen in the Cattedrale di San Gennaro in Naples, Italy.

The intriguing sculpted likeness of the famed football commentator was spotted by a BBC Sport presenter on his honeymoon.

Naples Cathedral is a French Gothic church and its completion dates back to the early 14th century.


Mike Williams told the Press Association:

We wanted to visit the famous Duomo di Napoli so that’s pretty much the first place we headed:

We spent about 45 minutes inside and it was just as I was leaving that I spotted this stone bust.

I was looking at it for at least 30 seconds before it dawned on me that whoever it was meant to be was also a dead ringer for John Motson.

The reaction has been hilarious.

People have been sending me mocked up pictures of the bust in a sheepskin coat and different Motty memes all day.

Have no idea who the statue actually is.

But am hoping the Duomo di Napoli now gets an influx of British football fans keen to pay tribute to St John of Motson.
