The photo of Jack Grealish was hung in the toilets of the Louvre

An iconic photo of Jack Grealish has been hung in the Louvre, although not next to the Mona Lisa. The footballer, 27, shared a photo of himself celebrating with fellow Manchester City players, as they toured Manchester in an open-top bus parade after winning the treble. 

He shared the photo, in which he can be seen topless with his eyes closed and arms stretched out, with the caption: “Hang it in the Loooouvre 💙😂,” and some took the suggestion seriously.

Paddy Power accepted the challenge and took to Twitter to reply to the footballer, saying they “couldn’t agree more” that the photo deserved a spot in the world’s most popular museum. This was accompanied by a photo of a man holding a large print of Jack’s Tweet next to the Mona Lisa. 

But despite travelling all the way to Paris in an attempt to get the photo hung, not just held, in the museum, they were unsurprisingly unable to get the photo on one of the famous galleries’ walls. The solution? The picture was instead proudly displayed in the museum’s men’s bathroom, above a toilet in a cubicle. 

Fans took to the comments to praise Paddy Power for the joke, with one saying: “Well done. In the looo uvre,” and another adding: “I’m sure the photographer that took that amazing Jack photo would like to know their work is in the Louuuuuuuvre.”
