The True Story of 'La Llorona,' the Weeping Woman No one knows the specific origins of the old Mexican ghost story. Even though Hayes explained it’s unclear when the story dates back to or how it even came to be, he believes it could be derived from Greek mythology, when Madea slaughters her own sons as revenge against Jason. “It seems just about the most horrific thing that can happen is the mother turns against her own children,” Hayes said. “That has sparked people’s imagination all over the world.

The Australian team have been given repeated warnings about the treatment they'll cop from English fans and media during the World Cup with Warner and Smith in tow, including from former captains Mark Taylor and Ricky Ponting.

"They have to expect the absolute worst and then anything better than that is going to be a bonus for them. That would be the way I would approach it if I was them."
