Madame Tussauds sparks hilarity after changing Trump waxwork into golfing gear following loss

The London branch of Madame Tussauds has sparked hilarity after they redressed their Donald Trump statue from his presidential suit to his golfing attire.

Joe Biden was announced as the president-elect after he was projected to win the state of Pennsylvania pushing the Democrat over their 270 electoral college points required to win the election.

Madame Tussauds wasted no time in changing its Trump waxwork after it was confirmed he would be leaving the White House in January, and dressed him up playing his favourite pass time.

On Instagram, the museum also had a little laugh at Trump's expense, writing: "His campaign may not have been a hole in one, but Donald Trump is now on course to dedicate more of his time to his favourite sport."

We're not sure we've ever seen Trump wearing something so stylish but it's a good look and we can only hope that he adopts it when he finally leaves the White House.

The subtle dig at the president, who has spent an enormous amount of time on the golf course during his presidency, went down well with critics of his on social media.

Reports on Saturday suggested that Trump was on a golf course when the news that Biden had been elected broke which is fitting for a man who spent one in every five days playing golf during the last year of his presidency, a statistic that could very well increase during his final two months in office.

This isn't the first time that Madame Tussauds has painted a rather scathing picture of the 45th president. Before the election had even taken place, their museum in Berlin, Germany placed their version of Trump into a massive dumpster labelled 'Dump Trump Make America Great Again' and surrounded by bags of rubbish and some of his own tweets.

Speaking to Reuters, Orkide Yalcindag, the museum's marketing manager said:

Today's activity is rather of a symbolic character ahead of the elections in the United StatesWe here at Madame Tussauds Berlin removed Donald Trump's waxwork as a preparatory measure.
