Beach ball

As some of our readers will probably be aware, Switzerland and Austria are hosting this year's European soccer championship. We can't remember which matches (and when) will be played here in Geneva, but maybe we can't help but notice later - we have been warned that the nearby Plainpalais "square" will be one of the places where fans will gather when the time comes.

But prior to the event, the city is trying to catch people's attention by suspending a giant soccer ball over the famous jet d'eau. Rumor has it that in certain (lucky) circumstances it looks like the ball is being held up in the air by the jet of water, but we have only seen it as it is on this picture or floating on the surface of the lake.
