BERLIN, May 10 The sphere of Deutsche Telekom's television tower in Berlin has been transformed into a giant soccer ball, a month before the start of the World Cup.

More than 8,000 pink and silver strips -- the colours of World Cup sponsor Deutsche Telekom -- were attached to the 'visitor's globe' by climbers hanging on cables.

The decoration will stay on the 368-metre tower, which was built in Communist East Berlin in 1969, for 60 days.

The World Cup begins on June 9 and the final will be played in Berlin on July 9.
