According to The Telegraph, North Korea's football team has been shamed in a six-hour public inquisition and the team's coach has been accused of "betraying" the reclusive leader's heir apparent following their failure at the World Cup.

Despite the humiliation, South Korean media reports that the players got off lightly by North Korean standards: in the past, North Korean athletes and coaches who performed badly were sent to prison camps; rumours abound, however, that coach Kim has been expelled from the Worker's Party and forced into the construction industry as a labourer.
