BT SPORT: Landlord legends
Royalty, war heroes and national leaders — those are the people we used to immortalise in bronze. But it's time for a new kind of hero: the pub landlord. We found three of the country's best and made them into statues, beer bellies and all (as well as a pint glass, a Leicester City scarf and a BT remote). The life size statues were placed outside their pubs around the country. The pedestals explain what makes them legends — like painting the pub blue to match the local team’s colours, or having TVs in the loos.
