Find the Yuri Gagarin statue

One of London's newer statues, at the end of the Mall near Admiralty Arch, and in front of the headquarters of the British Council, commemorates Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space.

The statue was unveiled last year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Gagarin's 108 minute journey to space, and is placed on a spot where crowds gathered to greet Gagarin on a visit to the UK in July 1961.
