Did Rihanna breach FIFA etiquette by touching the World Cup? Singer pictured holding the trophy with German players - after flashing her bra to celebrate .


Rihanna may have been the centre of attention at the World Cup Final's post-match party - but she may have committed a major faux when she touched the trophy.
FIFA guidelines have previously said that only winners of the tournament and heads of state are allowed to handle the official World Cup Trophy.
England’s Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge have previously been forced to observe this practice during promotional events in the UK.

But Rihanna – who had earlier lifted her top inside the Maracana during Germany’s 1-0 win over Argentina – was pictured holding the solid-gold prize and later revealed she had kissed and posed for a ‘selfie’ with the famous trophy.
Wives, girlfriends and children of the Germany players were also pictured with the trophy during the celebrations in Rio and it appears FIFA have relaxed their rules regarding the 18-carat gold prize.
Earlier the singer was spotted in the stadium flashing her leather-look bra during the game.
The 26-year-old took to Twitter to share a picture of herself getting into the spirit of the game before uploading a racy swimsuit snap showing her support for ‘her German boys’.
And not surprisingly when the final whistle went, the Bajan beauty was up for letting her hair down and celebrating with the German team.
The team, who were on cloud nine after their victory,  were more than happy to party alongside her and judging by the numerous pictures shared it was a fun filled night.

LOOK BUT DON'T TOUCH... UNLESS YOU'VE WON IT, ARE A HEAD OF STATE - OR WORK FOR FIFA. THE RULES SURROUNDING THE WORLD CUP TROPHY

FIFA rules stipulate that only a World Cup-winning footballer, certain FIFA representatives or a head of state can hold the trophy.
England’s Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge have previously been forced to observe this practice during promotional events in the UK.
However, in autumn last year, FIFA granted a one-time exception for Brazil's National Team for 5-a-side visually disabled football.
coca-Cola and FIFA surprised the team - which has won three consecutive IBSA (International Blind Sports Federation) World Blind Football Championships and Paralympic Games gold medals - in September by bringing the FIFA World Cup trophy to their training facility near Rio de Janeiro.
Coca Cola exec david Campbell said: 'As we all know, visually disabled people experience the world through touch, so we partnered with FIFA to grant an exception to the FIFA World Cup trophy regulations so these players might "see" the trophy with their own hands for the first time.'
No country can win the trophy outright anymore. The original trophy, with the name of the winning country engraved at the bottom, is kept by FIFA and the winner is awarded a gold-plated replica.

Up your style credentials in Rihanna's Trapstar T-shirt

When it comes to off-duty style, Rihanna pretty much has it down. From her relaxed court-side vibe, to an endless array of designer staples, this pop sensation sure does have an enviable wardrobe.
Last night’s ensemble was no exception either. Showing her support for erm…Brazil at last night’s world cup final, Ri Ri donned Trapstar’s classic Evolution T-shirt and a simple pair of black jeans, accenting the look with her signature Louis Vuitton handbag and the Brazilian flag.
Trapstar’s urban T-shirts have become a hot pick among the celebrity style set in the last year, with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora donning their designs on a regular basis. What's more, with the sport luxe trend set to continue into the new season and Rihanna's cool-girl look dominating in the style stakes, now is the perfect time to invest in an off-duty look that is guaranteed to earn you some cool points.
Keen to steal her sporty style? Head to Harvey Nichols and pick up this exact T-shirt for £145. Or, if you're looking from something a little more pocket-friendly, Asos and Topman have come up trumps. Start your search in the menswear section to emulate Ri Ri's androgynous vibe.

As a member of the crowd, Rihanna seemed to be in an excitable mood watching the match, as she was seen cheering and waving her arms throughout the 90 minutes. 
The night before, Rihanna had stepped away from her usual daring demeanor of dressing by wearing a simple black minidress for an event at the Budweiser hotel on Copacabana beach on Sunday. 
Keeping it quirky with a large nose ring and a slick of red lipstick, the Bajan beautyproved sometimes less is more when it comes to her wardrobe.

The Barbados-born singer, who has been tweeting her thoughts on the World Cup throughout the duration of the tournament, met the 72-year-old in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday evening and confirmed that meeting the footballing icon was something ticked off her 'bucket list' on her Twitter page.
Rihanna looked delighted to have met who she describes as 'the great Pele' while the former Santos and New York Cosmos forward also looked in buoyant mood in the series of photos the pop star posted on her official Twitter account.
