Elephant too hungry for US team
THE US team bus was delayed for a training session by an elephant snacking on a tree.
After four minutes, the elephant moved to the side of the road and the team drove on to Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
It was the second elephant interruption of the day for the US men. Earlier, a bus carrying 10 players to an open-air market got stuck behind an elephant, spokesman Michael Kammarman said.
Signs outside their hotel warn: “Elephants come close to our fence; keep a distance of 30 metres and please be quiet.”
