World Cup trophies have been stolen from the Johannesburg temporary headquarters of world football governing body FIFA. The national police commissioner Bheki Cele confirms the report but said the trophies were replica ones that would have taken centre stage at the Soccer City final in Johannesburg on July 11.

Cele said: “We knew that there was a theft and we are investigating.”

La Repubblica reported that besides the trophies, sports equipment was also lifted by the thieves.

The police also confirmed that 316 people, 207 of South African origin, have been arrested for World Cup-related crimes since the start of the tournament.
