The Dalai Lama celebrated his 75th birthday yesterday by showing his unequivocal support for the Netherlands football team. Dressed in his familiar orange football strip he watched a cultural performance in Dharamsala that had been put on especially for him. He left early, however, so as to be able to watch another cultural performance - the Holland v Uruguay match - which his favourite team won 3-2.

  2. Was that the King of the Netherlands wearing that shocking orange tie?
