Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been inducted into Madam Tussaud's.

The billionaire social network founder is one of the first internet entrepreneurs to make it into the famed hall of lifelike models.

In his new guise as a 'waxwork', Zuckerberg will wear his trademark hoody and a pair of jeans, and hold a (debranded) silver laptop.

He will not be wearing socks.

Unfortunately, the Zuckerberg model will be placed in Tussaud's San Francisco branch, not at its famous London site.

Other tech figures to be inducted into the museum in the past include the late Apple founder Steve Jobs and Microsoft's Bill Gates.

The figure was said to have taken between three and four months for 20 artists to create. It includes real human hair, and while subjects are usually asked to do a sitting Zuckerberg was too busy - and the artists had to work from photos instead.

The model also wears a Facebook T-shirt, donated kindly by the company.
