World Cup ball – internal rotors at fault

Adidas have finally answered growing criticism of the World Cup ball by revealing there is a problem with two of the six internal rotors on their self-pumping ball.

“Our science department in Munich has reported a malfunction in the self-pumping chamber of the Jabulani ball”, admits R&D Head Gerhardt Manschel.

“In addition to the aeroswerve irrationality chamber, the self-pumping mechanism is key to the unique and technically advanced components of the World Cup ball.”

He added: “Unfortunately, we have been monitoring the ball and discovered fluctuations in rotor speed functionality”.

Adidas hope to deflect the wave of criticism by issuing remote controls so that referees can manually adjust the internal rate of rotation during games.
