Sculptors at London's Madame Tussauds wax museum have been working non-stop to complete four identical figures of US President-elect Donald Trump in time for his Inauguration Day on 20 January.

The six-month process began in June with the casting of Trump's clay head mould, but work has ramped up since election day.

Known for his orange-tinted skin tone and trademark hair, colouring supervisor Verity Talbot and her 20-strong team have their hands full getting Trump's look just right.

Trump will be the first American president to already have a wax figure in Madame Tussauds, after sitting for the famous museum in 1997.
