» Trio return from space with football
4th June 18

Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov made it back to the earth Sunday along with an official match football that could be used later this month in the opening game of the World Cup in Moscow.

Mr. Shkaplerov, Scott Tingle of the U.S. and Norishige Kanai of Japan touched down on the Kazakh steppe after a 168-day mission aboard the International Space Station.

Footage from the Russian space agency Roscosmos showed the Soyuz descent module carrying the three touch down as recovery helicopters circled over the landing site. Mr. Shkaplerov was out of the capsule first and was pictured munching grapes as the support crew tended to him ahead of his journey back to Moscow.
