That's the warning from Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller to Jamaicans who will get a viewing, and even photo opportunities, of the FIFA World Cup.
The cup will be on display today at the Independence Park complex, where a number of activities related to the World Cup and football will take centrestage.
Only yesterday, the prestigious trophy was brought to the island as part of the Coca Cola FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour, during which it will be taken to 89 countries over a nine-month period.
It is the first time that the World Cup has been brought to Jamaica.
As the sport-loving Prime Minister addressed the media and other interests at a press briefing at the Norman Manley International Airport yesterday, she noted its beauty, historic significance and even had the audience in laughter at her conviction that the trophy is feminine in origin.
However, when it came to the matter of touching the trophy, Simpson Miller was dead serious.
"So precious, this iconic, most coveted cup in the world of sports, travels in its own private plane," she said.
"And I'm sure that the trophy is woman," she added, evoking much humour.
She continued: "When I looked at her she was shining so brightly and anyone would be desirous to touch her. But let me give a word of caution - all the people who will be viewing, no one will be allowed to touch the trophy.
"Do not try to, do not attempt to, not even the Prime Minister is allowed to touch it. Not even the Governor General will be allowed to touch it. No one except those managing her, will be able to touch her, she is very special," Simpson Miller warned.
Handlers of the trophy, connected to world football's governing body, FIFA, were quite guarded with the World Cup Trophy during its unveiling at the airport, making sure that where everyone else was concerned, it was a case of hands off, don't touch!
