    A beluga whale in the waters near the South Pole played a game of fetch with some rugby fans, News.com.au reported.

    In a video posted on Facebook, the playful whale chases after a 2019 Rugby World Cup ball tossed into the water and dutifully returns it, the website reported.

    The whale retrieved the ball more than once, apparently enjoying the game as much as the sallors, News.com.au reported.
