Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane has been immortalised on a small group of £5 notes, which have then been spent at four different locations around the UK.

Graham Short is a micro-engraver from Birmingham, recognised as a world leader in the field of micro-art, has engraved a 5mm portrait of the England captain onto six £5 notes in recognition of the six goals Kane scored at the World Cup, earning him the Golden Boot.

Short said his designs are insured to the value of £50,000 and that fans can expect that sum, should they auction the notes, if they are lucky enough to find one.

In addition to the portrait, the notes read: "World Cup Golden Boot Winner 2018."

One note has been given to the FA, another to Harry Kane, and the other four have been spent around the country.

Mr Short has revealed that he spent one note in Edinburgh, Scotland, one in Meriden, England, and another in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales.

The fourth and final note is yet to be spent but will be in Northern Ireland later this week.

"I was watching the World Cup, as many people were, and it looked like Harry Kane would get the Golden Boot, which was exciting, and when he did I started thinking it would be great to mark that by putting his portrait on a £5 note and got to work," Graham said.

In December 2016 Graham caused a similar buzz when it was revealed that four £5 notes had been circulated with an engraving of Jane Austen.

Will you be getting your hands on a five pound note with Kane's head on it?
