The Herald reports:
A British comedian disrupted a news conference by Sepp Blatter overnight, showering the FIFA president with fake money.
As Blatter took his seat, performer Simon Brodkin rose from a front-row seat to confront him.
“This is for North Korea 2026,” Brodkin said as he put the bills on the desk in front of Blatter. “Thank you very much. As a North Korean football ambassador, I’m delighted that I’ve been able to seal the deal with FIFA and North Korea for the 2026 World Cup. It makes sense for everyone.”
Brodkin then tossed the notes into the air as security led him away.
“Here we go Sepp,” he said. “Thank you. Cheers Sepp. It’s all there, as discussed. Thank you. Good doing business.”
Classic. It’s funny because it is so close to the truth.
