Robin van Persie's diving header against Spain provided one of the lasting images of the World Cup but for one Holland supporter who marked the moment with a large tattoo on his back, that is quite literally the case.

The die-hard fan covered half his back with two drawings - one depicting the visionary face of Holland boss Louis van Gaal and the other showing Van Persie's memorable follow-through on the ground after he had headed the ball into the net.

Van Persie seemed impressed by the tribute, sharing the photo via his Twitter account.
