UK: Marcus Rashford thanks artist for Withington mural

Footballer Marcus Rashford has thanked the artist who painted a mural of him near to where he grew up.

Street artist Akse has created the artwork on the side of Coffee House Cafe in Copson Street, Withington, Manchester.

He said the England and Manchester United star’s recent successful campaign to extend free school meals inspired the project.

Rashford tweeted an image of the finished mural with a “thank you”.

The artwork, based on a photograph by Daniel Cheetham, was done in collaboration with Withington Walls, a community street art project.
