After Euro 2012, sports fans could be forgiven for thinking that the international football season was over.
However, they would be overlooking the swamp soccer world title, held in Hyrynsalami, Finland.
In a game that is anything but beautiful, teams wade through feet-thick sludge, rather than perfectly manicured grass pitches.
Despite the filth, the event is phenomenally popular. Over 500 teams and 5,000 athletes compete on 22 pitches in the two day tournament, including many squads from around the world.
The women's competition was won by the Swedes, whilst in true cliff-hanger style, the home team won the men's competition on penalties.
