Spanish footballers have to stop Twittering

11:36 am on 28 May 2010

Spanish players at the World Cup will have to give up social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook during the tournament as coaching staff consider them an unnecessary distraction.

Striker Juan Mata says the coaching staff have told them they'd prefer that they're isolated from everything and he respects that.

The Barcelona defender Carles Puyol has already said goodbye to his Twitter fans.
