France win the FIFA World Cup

The Interactive World Cup, that is

Frenchman Bruce Grannec has taken the FIFA Interactive World Cup crown, the 22 year-old vanquishing Mexican Ruben Zerecero 3-1 at the final held in Spain.

The competition kicked off with entries totaling 500,000 players, so these two chaps must be pretty good at FIFA 09, all things considered.

Grannec takes home prize money of 20,000 USD, not to mention a car.

"I am very proud of this victory," he enthused. "It proves that, if you work hard, you will have success."

The final was watched by a crowd of 8,000. Thanks to the BBC.
