France Coach Claims Drone Spied On Team's Training Camp

France manager Didier Deschamps claims that a drone observed his squad's training camp in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, right before his team plays their first game of the World Cup.

France's first match is today against Honduras, though Deschamps didn't specifically accuse anyone of being behind the drone tactics. (One Honduran reporter at the press conference denied that his country had anything to do with it, as if that means anything.)


From the Guardian:

It is unclear at this stage who was behind the stunt, although Deschamps was clearly less than impressed, unlike a number of the French players, who are believed to have reacted with amusement when the drone – a small unmanned flying machine more commonly used to spy on military targets – hovered above.

According to Deschamps, FIFA will investigate the situation.
