Google has created a doodle of the late former Nigerian coach, Stephen Keshi, on its loading page on Tuesday to mark his 56th birthday.
Google said the doodle was in recognition of the legacy of the former coach of the Nigerian football team, the Super Eagles, who died on June 7, 2016, at 54.
Doodles are fun and spontaneous ways introduced by Google to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.
The doodle, which will be viewed in all African countries, illustrates the unique achievement of Keshi, who won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations as player and as a coach in 2013.
The author of Things Fall Apart Chinua Achebe (deceased) was another such notable personality honoured by Google in the past.
Google said, “Keshi is one of only two men to win the Africa Cup of Nations as both a player and a manager, a testament to his wit, talent, and love for the sport.”
