Footballers Break into Swimming Pool, Lose Cup

Reykjavík sports club Leiknir became Reykjavík Champion in the top football division for the first time in the club’s history on Monday, beating KR 3-2 in a dramatic game where Sævar Freyr Alexadersson scored the winning goal towards the end.

Leiknir’s players were ecstatic and celebrated into the night—at least that’s what employees of security firm Öryggismiðstöðin concluded when they found the cup Leiknir had won in the swimming pool Breiðholtslaug, reports.

Öryggismiðstöðin’s employees wrote in an open letter to Leiknir on the company’s Facebook page: “Dear Leiknir players. Congratulations on the Reykjavík Championship title! We found your cup in Breiðholtslaug last night. You can pick it up from us.”
