PHOTOS: Spurs show off new stadium’s Golden Cockerel


Tottenham Hotspur have gone to great lengths to make sure their new stadium’s golden cockerel looks a lot like the old one.

Spurs unveiled photos of the bird on Monday — hilariously living in someone’s backyard — and shared some truly impressive details about the replica, which is twice the size of the original.

The Premier League club used 3D scans to make sure that anything that’s happened to the original cockerel since 1909 was included in the original, and that includes dents put in the bird by Paul Gascoigne and an air rifle.

That’s not a joke.
