Steven Gerrard And Andrea Pirlo Among Football Stars Immortalised In Paint

Steven Gerrard leads a host of football starts immortalised in historic paintings.

Painted by one-time faker John Myatt, who was part of the 20th century’s biggest art fraud, Gerrard, Andrea Pirlo, Andres Iniesta, Arjen Robben and Cristiano Ronaldo are all featured on the canvas.

Juventus and Italy legend Pirlo is painted in the style of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa:
