Madame Tussauds has announced that it will immortalise one of England's Lionesses as a waxwork after the team's heroic efforts at the World Cup.

It follows England's fierce campaign in Australia this summer, which ended in a heartbreaking 1-0 defeat to Spain in the final on Sunday.

Madame Tussauds has opened a public vote to decide which player will be made into a waxwork and displayed at its London museum, to commemorate the team's achievements.

There are currently eight Lionesses in the running - could it be Nottingham-born goalkeeper Mary Earps with her golden glove? Liverpudlian Alex Greenwood, who kept on playing despite injury? Or captain Millie Bright who will forever go down in history?
