The Rugby League World Cup, which went missing for two decades up to 1990, has been fitted with a GPS tracking device so it can never be lost again.

The trophy, commissioned by French Federation president Paul Barriere for the inaugural World Cup in 1954, was stolen from a Bradford hotel before the 1970 tournament before turning up in a ditch 20 years later.

It's now been fully restored by Bradford jewellers Thomas Fattorini, complete with the missing cockerel, as England prepare to host the 2021 tournament and was unveiled at a World Cup event in Leeds on Friday.
