While 90 percent of those polled said that having a hangover at work was not acceptable, at least 60 percent admitted to having joked about it to their boss the next day. Now Drinkware has said that the number of people reporting to work when hungover could increase in the next couple of months.

"An international sporting event like the World Cup will inevitably capture the attention of the nation and is a great time for people to come together, but hangovers at work are likely to increase", Chris Sorek, CEO of Drinkaware, said.
