The World Cup trophy is on display in Africa for the first time ever
Hundreds of Ghanaians have been filing past the Fifa World Cup trophy which is on display in Accra.
Ghanaian President John Kufuor is the only person who has been allowed to touch and hold the 18-carat gold trophy, which is in Africa for the first time.
Three-time African Player of the Year Abedi Pele, who represented Fifa, was joined at the ceremony by former Ghanaian greats as well as Marcel Desailly, the former France captain who has Ghanaian roots.
There was heavy security around the Accra International Conference Centre with armed military officers brought in to ensure the trophy's safety.
The World Cup will be in Ghana until 11 January before it goes to Nigeria, Tanzania and South Africa for three days apiece.
