Many had wondered whether Sepp Blatter was so out of touch he lived on Mars, and now the Fifa president has all but confirmed it after he proposed an "Interplanetary Cup".
No, seriously. Rather than humbly address further corruption allegations against his beleaguered organisation, Blatter looked ahead to a galaxy far, far away.
“We shall wonder if one day our game is played on another planet? Why not? Then we will have not only a World Cup we will have inter-planetary competitions. Why not?”
Sure; Sepp lives on Mars already RT @richard_conway: Blatter: "We shall wonder one day if our game is played on the other planets. Why not?"— Sam Borden (@SamBorden) June 11, 2014
