On August 1 2006, Madonna unveiled a bronze cast of her hands outside Wembley Arena’s new Square of Fame. Madonna was the first person to be honoured with the privilege.

Quintain Estates deputy chief executive Nick Shattock said: “Madonna is officially the greatest female star in the world and we are delighted that she is the first of what will only be a few major names to be celebrated in the Square of Fame.”

Madonna said: “I look forward to seeing other artists adding their handprints alongside mine.”

  1. Madonna is the brightest star in the world, period! With the deaths of fellow icons David Bowie and Prince, she may be the only one left. So let’s enjoy her while there’s still time on Earth-there is only one Madonna!
