Fake clouds for World Cup 2022

Last year Qatar, a small country in the Middle East, won the chance to host the footie World Cup in 2022.

It's a long way off but already there's been a lot of controversy over the decision.

The main reason is all to do with the heat. Qatar is one of the hottest places on the planet. Temperatures can reach 50 degrees in the summer and that's when the competition will be held.

So how will the footballers and fans cope with the heat? Well a giant mechanical cloud seems to be the solution, as Ricky can explain.
