A dog named Pickles will always be linked with football. The Jules Rimet Trophy, then given for the football World Cup winner, was on display at the Stampex Exhibition at Central Hall, Westminster, four months before the World Cup tournament was due to start. It was stolen and a ransom demand was made for the return of the trophy. Miraculously, the trophy was sniffed out by Pickles from under a bush in Beulah Hill, while being taken out for a walk by his owner David Corbett. When England won the trophy, Pickles was invited to the celebration banquet as a reward. Incidentally, the thief was never caught.
