Federation Internationale de Football Association orders World Cup broadcasters to stop zooming in on 'hot women'

Few will have heard of Saransk before the tournament

Football's governing body FIFA has instructed television broadcasters to stop focusing on "hot women" fans attending 2018 World Cup matches in an effort to tackle sexism.

Speaking before yesterday's match between Croatia and England about FIFA's anti-discrimination program in Russian Federation, diversity boss Federico Addiechi said eliminating those type of shots is part of the "natural evolution" of broadcasts. "We've done it with our host broadcast services", he was quoted as saying by the BBC.

Before the World Cup kicked off in Russian Federation, there were widespread fears that racism and homophobia would be the most pressing problems at this year's tournament.

Racism was predicted to be the main World Cup problem because of longstanding issues in Russian soccer and other European fan bases.

Nestor Pitana of Argentina will referee the World Cup final between France and Croatia, FIFA announced on Thursday (Jul 12).

He is planning to also visit Hiroshima and Ehime prefectures next. "We need our water system restored". "We are doing our best". Elsewhere, work crews tried to clear multiple small landslides that coated roads, rendering them virtually impassable.

He added there had been around 30 cases of reporters who had been accosted on air.

Mr Addiechi said Federation Internationale de Football Association is working with Russian police and local organisers to identify fans who assaulted female reporters live on air.

If you go to Google and type in the words "World Cup" and "women fans" what comes up is images of handsome women dressed in their nations colours and usually wearing short shorts or crop tops.

He also said some have already been stripped of their FAN-IDS - the document spectators require to obtain access to World Cup stadiums. Monitors identified sexist incidents which included fans harassing female broadcasters. All were young women.

During the tournament photographic agency Getty Images published a photo gallery of "the hottest fans at the World Cup".
