There were TV crews from all over the world interviewing the kids who''ve reached the final, who were all dressed in scarlet Gryffindor robes with the name of their country embroidered on the back in gold. But the World Cup was momentarily interrupted by mayhem once the Potter cast members arrived.

Heart-throb Tom Felton, looked pretty different with a new skinhead haircut and had this to say:

"It''s a good game, we''re very impressed with it. I''m not quite as good as Malfoy is at the real Quidditch. Malfoy''s the bomb at Quidditch, isn''t he? I''m excited to be here - England''s got to take the pride hasn''t it really? After the rugby, we might as well take one more kicking."

Matthew Lewis added:

"This is mental. It''s good fun though as obviously you can''t play Quidditch in real life. It''s just so addictive. Its like FIFA football only it''s more magical and you can fly."

In the end, it wasn''t Britain''s day, but the cup went to a very happy Hidenori Tanaka from Japan.
