The World Cup has been invaded. By flies and bugs.
It got so bad that Hugo Lloris almost swallowed one during the France vs Uruguay match.

Broadcast journalists have had to abort live reports because they’re getting swarmed
First time for everything: Just had to abort going live on Sky Sports News with seconds to spare because of invasion of flies outside England team hotel. Big problem here in Volgograd. Helicopters have been spraying insecticide over the stadium this week
