Tunisia’s teenage taekwondo sensation Mohamed Khalil Jendoubi took home a silver medal on his Olympics debut in Tokyo.
He also turned heads with his resemblance to Manchester United talisman Bruno Fernandes.
After narrowly losing out on points in the final of the taekwondo 58kg event, a beIN Sports reporter asked him about his famous lookalike.
But rather than agree with the suggestion Jendoubi, 19, claimed that he looks more like a certain former Arsenal ace.
He said: “I think I look more like Ozil.”
Jendoubi may not quite have the following of the Portuguese or German stars just yet. But his performances in Tokyo will have had Olympics aficionados taking note.
His run to the final saw him defeat Solomon Demse of Ethiopia and South Korea’s medal favourite Jang Jung.
It was only Italy’s Vito Dell’Aquila that was able to halt his run, defeating him on points in a close final.
