The electronic thermometers that were used by the Italian national team in the World Cup final are being phased out by the manufacturer RBS Digital.

The digital thermographs are not being used by any professional football teams at the moment.

They were used at the Eurovision Song Contest in March, but the manufacturer had said it would cease to supply them to other European clubs as the time of the tournament has passed.

However, RBS is making an exception for its own digital thermograph, which is used by its retail outlets in the UK, Germany, Spain, and Italy.

The company is also replacing them with a digital thermometric device, which uses the same digital image.
