Mexico's World Cup celebrations shook the world

Mexico's seismic celebrations of their win over Germany literally shook the earth.

Hirving Lozano was the hero as they beat the World Champions Germany 1-0 in their opening group game.

Mexico's seismic monitoring network, Simmsa, said sensors picked up vibrations so strong they thought it was an earthquake

The quake was generated by Mexicans jumping for joy when they got the goal and again at the full time whistle, the company said in a tweet: 

“The #sismo detected in Mexico City originated artificially. Possibly by massive jumps during the goal of the selection of #México in the World Cup. At least two sensors inside the city detected it at 11:32.”
