World Cup: How does Brazil's vanishing spray work?

Referees at the World Cup in Brazil are using a white spray to help enforce the correct distance between the ball and defenders during a free kick.

The marks vanish after a short period, and help officials stop the opposition edging too near the attackers shot.

Ben Brown put the spray to the test on Rio's Copacabana beach.
