Armenia enjoyed the biggest win of their recent history when smashing four past Denmark in World Cup qualifying on Tuesday night, and gained an unlikely celebrity endorsement.

The crushing win in Copenhagen - secured thanks to a double from Yura Movsisyan and further goals from Aras Ozbiliz and Henrikh Mkhitaryan - took Armenia ahead of the Danes and into fourth spot in Group B.

And the win was welcomed by none other than celebrity Kim Kardashian, who tweeted to her near 18 million followers:

Kardashian, who is pregnant with rapper Kanye West's child, is one of America's most famous women but has Armenian heritage through her father - which explains her enthusiasm for their World Cup campaign.
