Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias immortalised taking a dump

IT might not seem, at first glance, to be the biggest honour at Christmas.

But, controversial leader of Spain’s fast-growing political party Podemos, will no doubt be thrilled having been immortalised taking a dump.

Pablo Iglesias has joined the ranks of celebrities and world leaders made into a caganer – a ceramic statuette meant for Christmas nativity scenes.

The defecating figurines – popular since the 18th century – symbolise fertility and bring good luck for the year ahead, particularly in Catalunya.
