6:42 am on 14 November 2013

Most tickets in the second phase of sales for next year's World Cup football finals in Brazil were sold in the first few hours after being made available on FIFA's website.

Nearly 230,000 tickets for 57 matches were put on sale, after nearly 900,000 were sold in the first phase through a random draw.

There'll be another ticket allocation after next month's World Cup draw determines where and when the 32 teams will play.
