Soccer elephants beat humans 2-1 as Thailand looks to stamp out illegal gambling

A team of elephants took to a soccer field in Thailand’s ancient capital, Ayutthaya, to play against local students in a match held to campaign against illegal gambling in the run up to the World Cup. The pachyderms, painted with various national flags, brought their a-game as they ran out 2-1 winners in the match played with an oversized ball. Students told Reuters that the elephants size made them tricky opponents to play against. Law enforcement and regulatory forces in Asia say they are gearing up to fight illegal gambling operators who have ramped up activities in the region ahead of the World Cup, making use of technology and cryptocurrencies to evade prosecution.
