Mexican football fans could hardly contain their joy when Hirving Lozano scored a goal against Germany in Mexico’s opening game of the World Cup.
Supporters of the team jumped into the air when the ball hit the net in the 35th minute.
But did their jubilant stomping really cause an earthquake as some media have reported?
A tweet from Mexico’s Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Investigations would suggest so.
The tweet by the institute, which monitors seismic activity, reads: “Artificial quake in Mexico City due to celebration of goal by the Mexican team in the game against Germany during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.”
The image highlights the moment of the goal with a red rectangle on the seismogram. This shows localised shaking near the seismometer.
