Fame game: Stars watch Germany win

Famous faces from David Beckham and Pele to Rihanna and Mick Jagger looked on from the stands as Germany lifted the World Cup with a 1-0 extra-time victory over Argentina at the Maracana.

Mario Gotze scored the crucial goal with seven minutes of the extra period remaining, with many of the famous faces in the crowd later taking to Twitter to congratulate Joachim Low and his players.

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen and former World Cup winner Carles Puyol brought the trophy onto the pitch before the game, while Shakira sang and Carlos Santana played the guitar at the tournament's closing ceremony.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter's official guest list was an eclectic mix, embracing everyone from actor Ashton Kutcher to former France international Olivier Dacourt, The Guardian reported.

Basketball player LeBron James and James Bond star Daniel Craig were also invited to attend by the FIFA president.

World leaders present at the Maracana included South African president Jacob Zuma, Russia's Vladimir Putin and Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban.

Some Brazilian reporters had branded Rolling Stone Jagger a jinx after he turned up for their semifinal humiliation by Germany. The singer later said he was prepared to take responsibility for the first Germany goal, but not the other six.
