Can you tell who this statue is? Don't worry if you can't, it's already raised a few eyebrows from fans, who say it doesn't look anything like the football icon it's meant to be. It's not the first time that statues of superstars have caused confusion either.

Olympic gymnast Simone Biles performed as an honorary member of the Houston Texans Cheerleaders during the 1st quarter of an NFL football game between the Houston Texans and the San Francisco 49ers at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The 49ers won the game 26-16.
Simone Biles burst onto the Olympic gymnastics scene at the 2016 Rio Games, with her jaw-dropping trademark move The Biles, and took home four gold medals. Not bad for a 19 year old, who only got into the sport by accident when a coach at a local gym spotted her perfectly copying the older girls' moves, aged six. Simone is now the most decorated American gymnast of all time, holding 19 Olympic and World Championship medals. PHOTO: Trask Smith/CSM/REX/Shutterstock

"He's a friend, he's family, he's everything." Meet Jade, the vet who treats homeless people's dogs for free. The animals may need vaccinating, flea treatment or even just their nails clipping. Doing this, Jade says, reminds her of why she became a vet in the first place – because she's "just a person being able to help an animal".
