Dave Brown -The Indipendent
In this cartoon from The Independent, Dave Brown uses the myth of Sisyphus to comment on the Greek football team's 4-2 defeat by Germany in the Euro 2012 Football Championship.
In Greek mythology Sisyphus was a king punished by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever.
The cartoon, which is based on a painting by the nineteenth-century English artist Edward Burne-Jones, depicts Sisyphus as a Greek (note the Greek flag used as a loincloth). The boulder resembles a football, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel can be seen painting the black spots on it.
