World Cup: It is here

Cup feverSouth Africa woke to the distinctive sound of the iconic vuvuzela this morning, as the Fifa World Cup finally arrived. We’ve been waiting like children on Christmas Eve for months now as the excitement built. And it would appear that we are not the only ones who can’t stop talking about the sporting event which kicks off today.

Facebook abounds with status updates relating to the Cup, and many South Africans have changed their profiles to reflect their support for our boys, Bafana Bafana. Things are no different on Twitter this morning, as we have 6 out of 10 of the worldwide trending topics.

Nelson Mandela tops the list, and with an expected appearance at the opening ceremony today all eyes will be on television screens. Next up is Fifa World Cup, followed by #worldcup and #wc2010. Bafana and Sudafrica complete the list.

As the games commence, the world will be watching – and talking – online and off line.
