Jimmy Jump is charged with attempting to steal the world cup

Sabadell native Jimmy Jump (Jaume Marquet Cot) faces a 300 euro fine and three months in jail for his almost successful attempt to place a Catalan baret on top of the world cup.

The international press didn’t really get the Catalan angle:

A 34 year-old Spanish man […] appeared to be trying to put a red hat on the trophy

He will experience first hand the swift, but not necessarily fair World Cup court. [Update] Already convicted and fined 240 euros.

Jimmy appeared previously on this blog when he joined the ballet corps at the Eurovision contest.
