Tottenham Hotspur have announced that fans will see a mural celebrating the club’s record goalscorer, Harry Kane, on their approach to the stadium on Saturday.
Kane became Tottenham’s all-time leading goalscorer with his strike against Manchester City back in February, thus surpassing Jimmy Greaves’ record of 266 goals, which had stood for 53 years.
The strike will be replayed for a long time to come as it is quite unlikely that the record will be beaten for many decades, if ever.
Ahead of Tottenham’s final home game of the season against Brentford, Spurs have announced that a mural will go up to honour the 29-year-old’s achievement.
One of the UK’s leading creators of street art, MurWalls, who previously produced a mural of Ledley King, have now begun work on a Kane mural on Whitehall Street, opposite the West Atrium entrance of the stadium.
Spurs confirmed that the artwork will be completed in time for Saturday’s game and will also include a QR code that can be scanned on mobile devices to view related content on SpursPlay.

Kane is certainly deserving of this tribute as his achievement is quite remarkable.
The striker’s record might well stand for even longer than Greaves’ did, particularly if he remains at Spurs for another year or two.
If the 29-year-old ends his career at Tottenham, he could even surpass the 400 mark and there is no doubt that he would have a statue outside the stadium when he hangs up his boots.
