The National Wax Museum Plus has unveiled its newest addition.

The waxwork of the "Notorious" Conor McGregor is expected to become one of its most popular attractions.

A new technical process involving 3D scanning was used, in conjunction with wax sculpting, to create the character.

The figure is also dressed in one of his trademark suits, chosen by McGregor himself.

The suit is tailored by Louis Copeland and Sons who have generously donated it to the museum.

Louis Copeland stated: "The suit was selected from the bespoke garments we create for Conor.

"It’s a navy blue three-piece suit custom created to fit the wax figure’s fighting stance."

McGregor himself suggested that his nom de guerre, "Notorious", be stitched under the lapel of the jacket.

The Wax Museum’s marketing manager, Laoise Keaveney said: "We are all excited to exhibit the new wax figure of Conor, particularly in light of the unprecedented level of worldwide attention being focused on his upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather on Saturday 26th August."

While McGregor's father, Tony, was on hand for the unveiling.
