World Cup 2014: Fans use vanishing spray to keep women away from TV

World Cup fans have been replicating using vanishing spray to keep their girlfriends away from the football

The introduction of vanishing spray has been one of the key talking points from the World Cup in Brazil aside from the football itself.

The spray is used by referees to ensure defenders remain 10 yards back from an attacking free-kick and to ensure that the taker doesn’t move the ball forward.

Now – and perhaps inevitably – fans on Twitter have been replicating using the spray to keep their girlfriends away from the football.

Vanishing spray has already been used in South American football since 2008, starting in Argentina.
