Police in Colombia have seized a replica World Cup trophy made entirely of cocaine.

The 11 kilo trophy, which was bound for an address in Madrid, was discovered by Colombian enforcement officers in a mail warehouse at Bogota Airport on Saturday.

It was found bundled inside a package of replica football jerseys and police later revealed that it was the “bad condition” of its gold paint which caught the eye of officers.

The 36-cm replica was made from a mixture of the class A drug and a moulding agent.
