The ball comes out from the hug during the annual Shrovetide football match in Ashbourne, central England. The aim of the teams, the Up'ards and the Down'ards, is to score by tapping the ball three times on stone goal plinths three miles apart on the banks of the River Henmore. The game dates back to the 17th century. Credit: Reuters
