    A right royal mess! Man's selfie with 126-year-old statue of 16th century Portuguese king ends in disaster when he knocks it over and smashes it into pieces

    A man has smashed a 126-year-old statue of a Portuguese king after toppling the iconic carving while climbing it to take a selfie.
    The unidentified man climbed onto the pedestal of the Dom Sebastiao statue at Rossio railway station in Lisbon in order to capture the perfect shot.
    Instead the 24-year-old managed to bump the item, sending it crashing to the ground and breaking into dozens of pieces.

    A spokesperson for Infrastructure Portugal said they did not know when it would be fixed or returned to the site

    The statue - which was in perfect condition - had sat adorning the station entrance since June 11, 1890, Globo reported.
    A spokesperson for Infrastructure Portugal did not know when it would be fixed, or returned to the site. However, he ruled out attaching it to the base using screws once it was reinstalled.
    Dom Sebastian, known as the child king, was a young leader who ruled Portugal from 1557 - 1578 after taking the throne aged three following the deaths of his father and grandfather.
    He died at the Battle of Alcacer Quibir when he was just 24, after his army was defeated by 60,000 soldiers amassed as a response to his invasion of Morocco.

    It's amazing how much different 24-year olds were 126 years ago.
