Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur have announced that their famous symbol, the Golden Cockerel, will be featured at the club's new stadium as well.

The iconic Cockerel was unveiled at their old home of White Hart Lane in 1909 and is currently on display at the Lilywhite House offices.

Spurs approached London Mould Makers to create a scaled-up replica of the original, which will be perched on the roof of the South Stand at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Arthur Steward of London Mould Makers said: "The Cockerel has such a rich history, it tells its own story. It is an honour to preserve that history and pay homage to the original artists who created it.

"Many of our employees working on this project are Tottenham residents, so we are all well aware of the huge benefits this stadium regeneration scheme will bring to the local area."

Mauricio Pochettino's side are still using Wembley at their temporary home ground as issues with critical safety systems led to a delay in the opening of the new stadium.
