Former Chelsea and Celtic midfielder Craig Burley has had the bust of Fernando Torres tattooed onto his arm after losing a public bet.

Burley, who now works as a pundit for ESPN in the US, predicted that Torres would not score in the Copa Del Rey for Atletico Madrid against rivals Real.

Torres, of course, scored twice.

But rather than back out of his bet, Burley saw it through and got the ink done at an American tattoo shop.

It remains to be seen if the tattoo is actually permanent (it looks less than completely convincing) but fair play to the Scot.
