A FORMER Hinchingbrooke School student has been making the most of the World Cup by reporting from Africa for an Austrian national newspaper.

Charlotte Rose, 19, wrote a heart warming report on Ghana's victory against Czech Republic on June 17.

Charlotte is completing a journalism work placement in Kumasi, Ghana, and wrote a first hand account on Ghana's reaction to the result.

She wrote: "Taking in the crowded Eclipse Bar in Kumasi, the atmosphere was nothing less than frenzied as referee Horacio Elizondo blew the final whistle on Ghana's first round match against the Czech Republic. Ghanaians simultaneously erupted onto the streets outside, in scenes of wild jubilation.
