Watch: Robots compete in epic football match at RoboCup World Competition

On the final day at the 19th RoboCup World Competition in Hefei, things got really tense. The five-day annual gathering of robotic whizz-kids and industry leaders featured events ranging from football to simulated rescue operations, with various different leagues and sub-categories in each. In the standard platform league, teams played with the same, smaller-sized robots. Defending champions from Australia's University of New South Wales team clinched the title for the second year in a row in a nail-biting match. They only pulled through in the final minutes with two back-to-back goals. In the humanoid adult-sized league - the final between the United States' Team ThorwIn and Iran's Baset went into overtime in another white knuckle tie-breaker which saw ThorwIn finally inch into victory after a foul from Iran.
