(REUTERS) - Germany had two Manuel Neuers in goal on Monday (Jan 26) - the real one and his wax likeness unveiled at Berlin's Madame Tussauds.

The Bayern Munich and national team goalkeeper hit the red button to unveil his green-shirted replica before posing for photos of the pair.

"[I]t is a figure that lasts forever. I think it's the kind of thing you only do once and it is something very special for me. Now, if I am ever busy or playing, my fans can still admire me whenever they want," he told journalists.
