Because Decathlon is originating from Lille, the famous sports selling brand has near Lille (in fact it's inside it's Metropolitan Area) the biggest sporting hypermarket in the world. It's so huge that I hardly saw general purpose hypermarkets that are bigger. O, and I almost forgot. At the entrance it was exposed (I think it still is) a t-shirt sign by ... Ronaldinho.
