However the most popular public spectacle in China is football, lol. They were probably the first people who had organized sport teams. With MANAGERS and shit.

Later on, the game spread to Korea (tsuk guk), Japan (kemari), and Vietnam. These guys played with Chinese teams which caused pseudo-world cups back in the 600's-1000's.

>They invented professional sports before every other nation in the world.

Nah, that was Ancient Rome and China.

Rome had professional fighting teams and racing teams for their games. Ancient China had proto-football leagues and a sort of isolated world cup was played between Cuju/Kemari teams from China, Korea, Vietnam, and Japan.
