These photos of football in the snow are better than anything at the 2018 Winter Olympics

Any excuse to look at football being played in the snow

Okay, we’ll come clean.

We’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Curling at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Something about the mix of ice, stones, broomsticks and shouting really does it for it.

But we’d still rather watch people playing football in the snow over any Winter Olympic event, aside from Ski Ballet which, as you can see, is sensational.
