Newly-svelte Australian legspin legend Warne joked that a hefty bronze statue of him unveiled at the Melbourne Cricket Ground yesterday was a "lifelike" memento of his time in Test cricket.
"It's 300 kilos that statue, it's pretty lifelike for when I played," said Warne, who drastically slimmed down after he began dating his now-fiancee Liz Hurley.
"It's a great honour, it's a bit weird seeing yourself up there, but I'm very proud," he added.
