I've come to the conclusion that at every World Cup game there's a FIFA agent positioned high up in the stadium holding a device with a big red button marked "Turbo".
When pressed the match ball temporarily goes into anti-grav mode. It seems that Lampard can't get anywhere near it before the button gets pressed...and Bravo's missed penalty for Mexico this afternoon showed all the signs.
Twice daily I walk down Mercer street in Covent Garden. One of the doorways has a permanent resident, whose own front door (pictured) suggests that even the metropolis's least favoured citizens are getting into the spirit of things.
