We spent the first half of the summer gazing at the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro during the World Cup but a very different artistic creation has popped up in Donegal.

McGuinness has led the county to three provincial titles and an All-Ireland title in four years and is currently preparing for Sunday week's All-Ireland final showdown with Kerry.

After masterminding a victory over raging hot favourites Dublin in the semi-final, a 'statue' of McGuinness has been erected.
