The iconic dancing Kopite, which adorned the cover of the Football Echo - or Pink Echo - for more than half a century, has made its way back to Anfield.

A lifesize wooden figure of the famous Kopite, which was produced for marketing purposes in the 1960s, was found during the Echo’s move from Old Hall Street to new offices in St Paul’s Square last month.

The Kopite held an upturned tin tack representing a ‘point’ when the Reds drew, and a sobbing version was used for when the Reds lost.

LFC’s museum curator Stephen Done was on hand to accept the piece of memorabilia from Liverpool Echo sports journalist David Prentice at Anfield, where the Kopite enjoyed some time exactly where he should be - on the Spion Kop!

Stephen said: "It’s a wonderful piece of social and cultural history and something we’d be delighted to display in the museum.

"I’m planning for it to go into the museum in a cabinet beside the recreation of the Kop, where we have items relating to supporters including ‘Dr Fun’ another great character.

"It’s a beautiful piece of work and we’re delighted to take possession of it."
