(AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Neymar couldn't help but laugh in amusement after taking a long look at the newly unveiled wax figure of himself.
He gingerly adjusted the hair of his lookalike, and then posed by it, imitating the goal-scoring celebration that had just been immortalized on the figure created by Madame Tussauds.
Neymar said it felt like he was looking at his "twin brother."
Neymar chose the figure's pose to reflect his celebration of a goal at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, which he called "the most important moment" of his career.
The waxwork, wearing a Brazil national team kit that was donated by Neymar, was unveiled at a private event at Barcelona's training center on Tuesday. It will be on display at Madame Tussauds in Orlando, Florida.
