Strange but true

Berlin, Germany: Construction work has now finished on a giant brothel set to cater for tens of thousands of football fans at next year's World Cup. Built just yards from the main stadium, its owner believes the three-storey Artemis brothel will be a big hit with World Cup visitors. Norman Jacob, lawyer for the owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: 'Football and sex go together extremely well.' Prostitutes wishing to use the facility have to pay £50 to 'rent' a room there for three months. For that price they get free meals and access to the Artemis gym. Prostitutes negotiate their own fees with clients, who must also pay an entrance fee of £50 to enter the complex, which has rooms for more than 100 girls as well as a sauna and lap dancing bar.
