Netherlands striker Robin Van Persie scored one the best goals of this year's World Cup. It inspired a Twitter movement -- #persieing -- which even reached Holland's elderly set. And now, in Rio de Janeiro, the play is on display in the form of a mural.

And Van Persie himself approves.

So far no one has painted anything memorializing Arjen Robben's dive against Mexico in the Round of 16.
