A popular football commentator has been honoured with his own garden gnome.

Geoff Foster, who commentates on Coventry City matches for BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Radio, looks uncannily like a gnome recently launched as official merchandise at the club, BBC News reported.

"We went through all the design and proofing of the brochure, but it was only when the final copies arrived at the Ricoh that several people noticed that our gnome looked uncannily like Geoff," said Justin Tose, head of retail at Coventry City Football Club.

"But it is not only looks they have in common. The gnome - like Geoff of the BBC - has proved popular with fans, has a sunny disposition and always has a smile on his face."

Homeowners aiming to spruce up their properties could also opt to have a stylish garden building erected like a log cabin or summer house. Mr Foster commented that just as Jimmy Hill deserves his statue at Coventry City, "I am happy with an eight-inch gnome".
