, Besides, we do not also know about that the queen and another gentleman was speaking.
In Spain it is very habitual, that the attendees to the game say his bet of the result of the game, probably the queen not to be too much in favour of Spain, I imagine that they could stay in tie.
I do not believe that it is an offensive gesture, it is a stupidity
Really? Wow!... I never heard about that! Then it must be some signal specific of America, because we don't have anything of that here!
Here in Portugal, that gesture simply means that she was betting for a 0-0 result, at the end of the game!
I'm equally surprised by this, too. So maybe it is a Brazilian or South American gesture as I am unfamiliar with it in Canada, and as American and Canadian cultures are similar, I don't think that it's common in America either. To imply with a hand gesture that someone should go to a not very nice place, it's a different gesture here.
I would agree with Elsa that looking at the pictures before I saw the reply that it would imply to me that the score was zero/zero. It wouldn't imply to me something offensive.
