British comedian John Oliver has seen his routine on FIFA go viral on the eve of the 2014 World Cup.

Oliver was hosting Last Week Tonight when he told the audience how his excitement for the tournament was tempered by the fact that FIFA are organising it.

Nothing goes unmocked: from protests in Brazil to the laws they create to host it, from awarding Qatar the tournament at a time of year when temperatures can reach 50 degrees Celsius to their bizarre and imposing meeting room. From bribery to commissioning a film about themselves, and all that's in between, Oliver is on top form.
