TROPHY FOR PICKLES

The first world soccer cup, named the Jules Rimet cup, was stolen in Westminster, UK in 1966 and then found under a hedge in South London by a dog named Pickles…later it was stolen again in Rio de Janeiro in 1983 and believed to have been melted down. The Fifa World Cup was first presented in 1974 made of solid 18 carat gold. This remains a floating trophy.
