Jose Mourinho has reached agreement with RT to provide coverage for the World Cup.

The international channel that has been branded a "foreign agent" by the United States does not have the television rights to show World Cup matches but says it will provide “live text commentary” and reports.

“Guys, I know you are nervous. This is a huge tournament and a huge amount of pressure,” Mourinho said to the stunned-looking RT journalists. “We will show the world a great game – the greatest game.”

RT has several foreign language services besides English and is particularly active on YouTube.
