Controversy over World Cup anthem

Choice of Colombian singer Shakira upsets South Africans.

    Organisers of the 2010 football World Cup in South Africa are under fire for their choice of singer for the tournament's official anthem.

    Instead of going for a South African, they have chosen Colombian pop star Shakira and that has not gone down well with locals.
