The World Cup is just three days away and while the build up has been witnessed in some unusual places around the globe.

From elephants playing football in Thailand with school children, to a diver showing his skills underwater in South Korea surrounded by sardines, the lead up to the biggest sporting event is as frenzied as ever before.
