For all the wrong reasons, it’s one of the most famous moments in footy history. And now Zinedine Zidane’s headbutt in the final of the 2006 World Cup has been turned into a statue. An artist has created the statue in France as part of series of works of art to remember famous moments in history. The bronze work measures nearly five metres tall and the headbutt will be on display in Paris until January.
1 billion Facebook users
There are now more than one billion people using social networking site Facebook every month around the world. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement on American TV on October 4. He posted on his profile, “Thank you for giving me and my little team the honour of serving you. Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and I am most proud of in my life.” Facebook released a special online video to celebrate the milestone. It compares Facebook to chairs, because “chairs are for people”.
Robot attends school
A seven-year-old boy who is too ill to go to school has sent a robot to class in his place. Devon Carrow, from New York in America, uses the £3,000 ‘robo-swot’ to answer his teachers’ questions and take part in group discussions, all from the comfort of his home. The high-tech gadget uses HD cameras to show Devon his classroom and he can signal when he wants to give an answer with a flashing light. The robot even has its own desk. Devon has lots of allergies, which mean it is dangerous for him to be around other children. His mum says that the equipment helps him feel included and realise that he still has to go to school the same as anyone else.
