For an hour the football mad country of Brazil came to a complete standstill. All eyes were on the draw to see who was playing who - and ex-pat England fans were nervous.
With six months to go it felt like the party had already started. But for fans travelling out from England, the logistics and costs may dampen the euphoria.
There were mixed emotions in the Soweto township where Nelson Mandela lived under - and fought against - the Apartheid regime.
Crowds gathered outside his former home which is now a museum.
From there ITV's International Correspondent John Irvine reports:
A successor President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, called upon the world to celebrate the loss of Nelson Mandela - 'an international icon'. A memorial service will be held in Soweto next week; he will lie in state before a state funeral, next weekend.
It will be attended by world leaders, more of whom offered their praises today. But, in South Africa and around the world, the grief and gratitude of ordinary people too, poured out - some had met him; all felt he had touched their lives and changed their world.
From outside Mandela's Johannesburg home, ITV's Africa Correspondent Rohit Kachroo reports:
In London's Trafalgar Square, which for decades was at the centre of anti-apartheid protests, there was a fitting focus for tributes to Mandela. Hundreds queued up to sign a book of condolence at the South African high commission.
And, as ITV's Special Correspondent Rageh Omaar reports, many also remembered the leading role Britain played in helping end South Africa's racist regime.
Across the United States flags were at half mast, and a minute's silence was held at the New York stock exchange in Mandela's memory. But he was not always thought of so warmly.
As ITV's International Editor Bill Neely reports many US politicians who spent years siding with his apartheid oppressors were staying quiet:
There will be cloud and rain across Scotland and showers across the western regions tomorrow but it will be sunnier for the rest of the UK.
Police have urged anyone who might have pictures or video of the helicopter which crashed into the busy Clutha pub to come forward.
The public has been sending photographs and footage of the helicopter and the area around the Clutha Vaults to our dedicated email address.
I would ask that they continue to send any media they have.
Officers are at the scene today, one week on from the incident in an effort to trace witnesses and speak to anyone who may have been in the area close to the crash site seven days earlier.
– Detective superintendent Robbie Allan, senior investigating officer
I would appeal to anyone who has any information who has not yet come forward to speak to officers to do so.
Please do not assume that officers know what you know, or that someone else will already have passed the information to officers.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Police Scotland, by calling 101.
Police have appealed for witnesses a week after a helicopter crashed through the roof of a busy Glasgow pub.
Nine people, including three on board the helicopter, died when the aircraft fell from the sky "like a stone" on the Clutha pub in Glasgow at 10.25pm.
Police said the aircraft had travelled to the Gorbals area of Glasgow near to Aikenhead Road at about 8.47pm last Friday.
It then travelled to the east before returning to Glasgow, travelling over the Bothwell and Bargeddie areas. Around 10.20pm the helicopter was near to the Shettleston area of Glasgow.
The last series of sightings of the helicopter was in and around the Stockwell Street and King Street areas of Glasgow city centre shortly before the crash.
Anti-apartheid campaigners paid tribute to the man they spent decades trying to free at a Nelson Mandela vigil in central London.
Former members of the Anti-Apartheid Movement (AAM) spoke of their grief at his death and their relief that he was at peace after a long illness.
They and several hundred supporters gathered outside South Africa House in Trafalgar Square, which once played host to demonstrations against apartheid.
