Cup hopes for Adidas

ADIDAS' 16pc drop in 2014 is leaving options traders unshaken as they bet that the World Cup tournament will help it recover.

Options that appreciate as shares gain cost the most in almost four years relative to bearish ones, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The international sportswear manufacturer has risen 3.8pc after falling to a one-year low on March 24.
