The new World Cup football is dividing the internet

Every four years, football fans relish the arrival of the World Cup. And while most viewers focus on the actual sport, there are a few of us out here keeping an eye on the various designs. From kits to logos, there are plenty of designs to be excited about, but today it's the ball itself that's caught the internet's eye.

Adidas has designed the football for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The ball has been called 'Al Rihla', which translates to 'the journey' in Arabic, and is supposedly the fastest ball to ever be used in the competition. However, the new design has split the internet in half. If you'd like to have a go at designing your own world cup football, then why not download Photoshop and get creating?
