Iran says no to metrosexual footballers

'I will ban athletes with an effeminate look,' proclaims Mohammad Ali-Abadi, the head of Iran's physical education organisation. He continues: 'It is really disgraceful for Iran that young people step onto fields wearing make-up… When a man enters the field with dyed hair and groomed eyebrows he is disrespecting society.' Exactly, Mo – I can't stand men with groomed eyebrows either.

Just as well David Beckham isn't Iranian, I suppose.
