Football referee Mark Clattenburg has got himself some new tattoos as a memento after taking charge of two major European finals in one year.

The Premier League official, from Consett in County Durham, was selected as the referee for both the UEFA Champions League final in May and the Euro 2016 final last month.

He was also the referee for this year's FA Cup final between Manchester United and Crystal Palace.

The 41-year-old has now had a permanent reminder of his success inked on his body whilst on holiday in Spain.

Tattoo artist, Mick Mahon, posted photographs of Clattenburg's new artwork on social media. She commented:

It's not every day you get to tattoo the world's top football referee... Mark Clattenburg back for more!
