Mick Jagger jinx blamed for Brazil's semi-final exit
He has spent 50 years filling football stadiums the world over, but Mick Jagger has become a pariah on match days after earning a reputation for jinxing every team he supports.
An extraordinary run of bad luck over the two World Cups has seen Jagger witnessing the exit of four teams he was supporting, including Brazil during their 7-1 thrashing by Germany.
A verbal message of good luck from Jagger is sufficient to guarantee a team's downfall, after he expressed confidence in Italy and Portugal before both were sent packing. He is known in Brazil as Pe Frio, or Cold Feet, a Brazilian term for a jinx. He has also been called The Angel of Doom.
