Madame Tussauds New York has reportedly retired its waxwork of pop sensation Justin Bieber, saying it "no longer does justice to the star" after unexpected wear and tear.
The wax figure was removed after persistent attention from fans caused excess damage, despite regular maintenance, said the New York Post.
Bret Pidgeon, general manager at Madame Tussauds, said: "This is disappointing, but hopefully we can welcome a new ‘grown-up’ Justin back to the attraction in the near future."

People are being encouraged to wear a Christmas jumper on Friday 13 December and give £1 or more to Save the Children.
