South Africa's police commissioner says seven World Cup replica trophies have been stolen from FIFA headquarters in Johannesburg.

General Bheki Cele said at a security briefing Tuesday "we know that there was a burglary at the FIFA offices where they took seven replicas of the World Cup."

Official FIFA clothing was also taken, according to Cele.

Cele said police were looking into the theft and suspected the people responsible were "very familiar with the environment in the FIFA offices."

FIFA's headquarters is in the high-class northern Johannesburg suburb of Sandton.

FIFA did not comment on the theft at its daily media briefing in Johannesburg on Tuesday, saying it had no information on the incident.
