They think that it’s orange balls

In your digests section (MW December 11 1997) you say: “It is the first time that FIFA has allowed a coloured ball to be used in the World Cup Final”. Somewhat surprised by this, I contacted a number of friends and associates and asked: “How much of the 1966 World Cup Final ball was orange”. They all said that “they think it’s all over”. Even if it wasn’t orange in 1966, having seen the ball displayed at Waterloo International, I can definitely confirm that it is now.
