That would take to mean real football, and not that flopper soccer "sport", then?
A court has banned Google's Blogger service in Turkey over a row about pirated football feeds. A local court outlawed the service in response to a complaint by satellite TV firm Digiturk that streaming media feeds from local games were appearing on multiple Blogger profiles.

This site is operated from outside of the one country in the world that uses the name football for a sport derived from rugby in which you carry the ball in your hands rather the kick the ball with your foot, hence the name foot-ball (not going to fast for you are we?).

"After Russia, the largest volume of attacks we observed came from North Korea, Iran and China; South Korea, Turkey (a new entrant to our reporting) and Vietnam were also active but represent much less volume," said MS in a post announcing its findings.
Roundup Welcome to another lash-up of lunacy, as we gather together some odd and unusual stories from the past few days and pass them to you surreptitiously while suggesting "the swallows fly south at sunset" in a bad Hungarian accent.
While most of Europe was still in bed at the weekend, Italian stunt pilot Dario Costa got up early, climbed into his aeroplane and, apropos of nothing, flew it through two Turkish motorway tunnels, becoming the first person on Earth to do so.
The flight, which took place through the Çatalca Tunnels on the Northern Marmara Highway east of Istanbul, broke the world record for the longest tunnel ever flown through in an aeroplane, an incongruous title which up until this point has not been hotly contested.
The flight – which began in the shorter Çatalca-2 tunnel then emerged into the open air before again plunging into the longer 1,638m (5,374ft) Çatalca-1 section – covered 2.26km in total (1.4 miles) and lasted for 43.44 seconds, which when you watch the video is a disturbingly long time for an aircraft to be underground [see below].
