Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has helped to put the finishing touches to the mural celebrating the club’s all-time leading goalscorer Harry Kane.
Kane made history by going past Jimmy Greaves‘ tally of 266 goals with his match-winner against Manchester City back in February, thus beating a record that had stood for more than half a century and one that many fans thought would never be broken.
Spurs announced earlier this week that fans will see a mural celebrating the 29-year-old’s achievement in their approach to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the club’s final home game of the season against Brentford this Saturday.
The artwork, which is on Whitehall Street, directly opposite the West Atrium entrance of the stadium, was undertaken by MurWalls, one of the UK’s leading creators of street art.
The mural includes Kane’s celebration after he broke the record against City along with the words, ‘He’s one of our own’.
Fittingly, Lloris, who has seen the striker’s journey from the academy into the first team and his transition into a club legend, helped to put the finishing touches to the masterpiece.

It is a fantastic gesture for Lloris to put the finishing touches to the mural.
In a way, it potentially represents the passing of the baton by the current Tottenham captain to the next, with the Frenchman now looking increasingly likely to exit the club at the end of the season.
