A selection of the best photos from South Africa as the hosts and Spain were both left reeling after defeats.
Who is this clown, you might ask? Well, for those lucky enough to not be subjected to his champagne-quaffing antics in the Metro every day, this is London mayor Boris Johnson blowing his own trumpet.
You may say that Diego Forlan's 'try and catch me' goal celebration had more panache, but for Hollyoaks-esque acting this cheerleader routine has to top it.
South Africa keeper Moeneeb Josephs escorts the ball into his own net with incredible circumspection as he shepherds Diego Forlan's shot over the line.
It was win, win for this fan as she not only looked great with her eyelids covered over with the South African flag, but also managed to miss the entirety of her side's 3-0 defeat to Uruguay.
This Uruguayan/Scottish fan dances jubilantly in front of a group of dejected South Africa supporters - harsh.

Of all the places to hang the flag, this Honduras fan opts to plant it straight over her face. Quite a shame really...she missed some good play from Chile.
