On Saturday, Wayne Rooney made history by scoring his 250th goal for Manchester United, becoming the all-time top scorer for the club. His stunning free-kick moved him ahead of Sir Bobby Charlton to break a record that had lasted for 44 years. No mean feat.
As the ball hit the back of the net, Nike unveiled a gigantic mesh banner covering the entire front facade of Hotel Football besides Old Trafford, to celebrate the record-breaking moment.
The artwork visualised the iconic ‘Rooooney’ chant, spelling out the Nike athlete’s name with 250 ‘o’s – one for every goal he’d scored.
