Two years ago, Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf became the first – and so far, the only – Fortnite World cup champion. Now he’s immortalized in the game itself.

As part of its “series of icons”, which most recently included LeBron James, Epic adds a Bugha skin to Fortnite July 20. The skin comes with a handful of different outfits, including what Bugha was wearing when he lifted the World Cup trophy. Most importantly, this trophy – inspired by the iconic Fortnite battle bus – is available in back bling, with Bugha’s adorable pug sticking out his head.

Bugha joins a growing list of real-world humans to feature in the virtual battle royale, including Neymar, Travis Scott, and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins.

Due to the pandemic, this 2019 edition of the Fortnite The World Cup remains the only one to have taken place. The tournament was canceled in 2020, and while developer Epic has promised more tournaments this year, he also said it would not include a world championship.
