Elon Musk, the Tesla and Twitter CEO, appeared in Qatar on Sunday just ahead of the World Cup final before Argentina and France.
Qatari TV broadcaster beIN Sports caught Musk entering Lusail Stadium to see whether Lionel Messi will be able to wrap up his first World Cup title or Kylian Mbappe capture his second World Cup championship. Musk also tweeted the live FOX broadcast of the World Cup.
Musk’s companies SpaceX and Starlink reportedly partnered with Qatar Airways to send two World Cup balls to space and back. Once back on Earth, the balls were sent to Qatar on Qatar Airways and arrived at Hamad International Airport.
