A statue of the famous Czech long-distance runner Emil Zátopek has been unveiled at a sports stadium in Zlín, south Moravia. The four-time Olympic champion used to run at the Stadium of Youth and met his wife Dana at the venue. The life-sized bronze sculpture, which is by Radim Hanke, depicts Zátopek running in his trademark pained-looking style and stands metres from the stadium’s 400m track.
