A former England cricket star has received a brilliant birthday gift from his wife: a chair made out of all the strips he's ever worn!

The chair was made by custom chairs company Kelly Swallow, who specialise in individually sourced bespoke products.

But which former England star was the lucky man to receive the gift a few years ago, and on Sunday posted the chair on his Instagram on his 39th birthday?

It is of course batting icon Kevin Pietersen, who paid thanks to his wife Jessica for coming up with the ingenious idea.

He said to his 1.8million followers on Instagram: 'This is the chair I'm sat in. A birthday present from @jessicalibertyx a few years ago.

'All the shirts I wore for every team I played for. The most amazing gift ever!' The image has been liked more than 43,000 times and shows all his county, franchise and international shirts. The back of the chair has a very special shirt emblazoned with his name and number 24 - it's the shirt he wore during the 2010 T20 World Cup, when England won the whole tournament in the West Indies. It was a year ago on Saturday that Pietersen was named man of the tournament as England won their first ever limited-overs ODI tournament in Bridgetown.

The side led by Paul Collingwood beat Australia in the final, and was Pietersen's only limited overs tournament triumph with his country.

The South-African batsman is fifth in the rankings of England's all-time Test match run scorers with 8,181 - his former team-mate Alistair Cook is top.
