(LONDON) — American actor Chuck Norris is globally known as a legendarily tough movie tough guy, and apparently his Slovakian fans are hoping to impart some of his fortitude to a bridge named in his honor.
According to the U.K.’s Guardian, residents have been voting overwhelmingly in favor of naming the pedestrian and cycling span over the Morava River into Austria after the former Walker, Texas Ranger star.
The Internet-based voting will end in April, and a regional assembly is expected to formally follow the popular vote.
