World's most expensive football up for sale

11:53 am on 11 June 2010

A South African jewellery company is in talks with a Spanish and British club to sell what the firm claims is the world's most expensive football, a 2.2 kilogramme diamond-encrusted football.

The ball took two and a half years to create and is the exact size and dimension of the Adidas tournament ball - although it costs a little more, valued at almost $4 million.

It's made of 6,620 white and 2,640 black round brilliant cut diamonds and contains 3,500 carats.
