The painting was vandalized following the UEFA Euro 2020 Final. The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham described the mural defacement as a "despicable, shameful act".[1] In response, people placed supportive messages across the artwork.[1][5] Akse restored the mural.[6][7] On 16 July 2021, Manchester City Council announced plans to preserve the items left at the mural following the vandalism. A representative of the council described the public’s response as a "Manchester moment we will all remember and should not forget".[8]
