Germans open World Cup überbrothel

He arrives, he pays, he scores!

Ever the pragmatic nation, Germany has decided to boost replica kit, souvenir programme and meat pie revenues at next year's World Cup by opening an enormous brothel to cater for those fans who want to score but don't have David Beckham's golden balls or shooting skills.

The Artemis shagging facility is just yards from the main stadium in Berlin, Ananova reckons, and its anonymous owner says the three-story bonkorium "will be a big hit with World Cup visitors". His lawyer, Norman Jacob, explained: "Football and sex go together extremely well."

They do indeed. Ladies of the Night wanting to set up stall in the Artemis - which can accomodate 100 girls - will have to pay 50 quid for three months, although free nosh and access to the gym is thrown in. The complex also boasts a sauna and lapdancing bar.

Punters too pay 50 notes to get into the building, but then negotiate a fee with the strumpet of their choice. Quite what the going rate for the old footie favourite - the spit roast - currently is remains to be seen. ®
