Japan fans cleaning up the stadium will melt your heart

When Japan fans were pictured cleaning up rubbish in the stadium after their World Cup clash with Ivory Coast, they won plenty of applause from the football world. The Samurai army, as they are known, took their own bags and brushes to the Arena Das Dunas and used them to cheer the team on, before getting to work after the full-time whistle.

They collected bottles, food wrappers and other rubbish long after thousands of other fans had left following the rather boring 0-0 draw. The supporters then neatly left the bags piled up around the back of the stands, so officials could easily dispose of them next time the bins are collected.

These heart-warming snaps show the fans hard at working making things nice for the next match, restoring some of the pride back into the beautiful game.

The World's "Poorest President"

If there is any world leader who can rightfully be termed as the man of the people, it is definitely the President of Uruguay. The 77 year old President of Uruguay, José Mujica is officially the world's poorest and most generous president, not because he cant be richer, but because he donates 90% of his earnings to charitable causes. The president of the country has earned the nickname "el presidente mas pobre" which means "poorest president".

The President who took over office on the 1st of March 2010, said in a recent interview that the only big item he owns is his Volkswagen Beetle car, valued at $1,945 dollars. He earns a salary of $12,500 a month, but only keeps $1,250 for himself, donating the rest to charity.

Guinness record for wire walk without a balancing pole

Freddy Nock, 46-year-old Swiss daredevil, broke a new record after a 3000 meters high and kilometre long walk along a funicular cable without a balance bar and safety belt. Freddy Nock will enter his accomplishment in the Guinness Book of Records for the "longest and highest wire walk above sea level without a balancing pole".

For his performance, he chose especially the Zugspitze Mountain, the highest peak in Germany, with an altitude of 2962 meters. It took Freddy Nock 90 minutes to complete his mission as he walked on the cable that was featuring a diameter of only five centimeters.

Through his life-risking feat, Freddy Nock hopes to raise money for UNICEF. In 2009 he had climbed the same German mountain but with a balancing pole and raised $19,000 for a German organization that supports rural development projects in Ethiopia.
