Following Algeria's team on a scooter

Like all of the North African teams, Algeria are out of the Africa Cup of Nations tournament. Yet it has had more supporters at matches than most visiting teams.

It is estimated that around 2,000 Algerian fans made the pilgrimage to the continent's southern tip from North Africa.

One of them is Abdulkader Belqadi, a die-hard football enthusiast who bought a scooter to follow Les Fennecs (Desert Foxes) around South Africa.

He told the BBC's Mohamed el-Sayed why he is not leaving just yet.
