Crazy Norwegians invent ‘bubble football’

World of Sport

A group of Norwegian lunatics - yes, that's the only word for them - have invented an entirely new sport that has to be seen to be believed: bubble football.

The game sees players run around the pitch wearing what could be loosely described as giant, inflatable hamster balls on their heads. It obviously impairs their movement and agility, but they simply bounce safely whenever they take a spill.

The game is the brainchild of Henrik Elvestad and Johan Golden - for those who don't speak Norwegian, you may wish to fast forward our video to the one minute mark to get straight into the action.
