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

Television producers have been habituated to showing attractive women on television and the practice exits across multiple sports.

France will take on either Croatia or England in the final at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium on Sunday.

He also said there have been several cases of women reporters being grabbed or kissed while on air.

When asked if this approach will become an official policy for future events to come, he said: "This is one of the activities we definitely will have in future - it's a normal evolution". "We have done it on a case-by-case basis when some cases arose and they were pretty evident", Addiechi said, as quoted by the Irish Examiner. "We've done it with our host broadcast services".


When asked how Federation Internationale de Football Association could combat this, Addiechi said it has been working with the local organisers and Russian police to identify these fans, some of whom have lost their FAN-IDs (a document all spectators must have to obtain access to stadiums at the World Cup) and been forced to leave the country.

"The only thing we have really flagged up which has been significant has been the level of sexism which has been encountered by some women, often Russian women who have been confronted by fans", he said. There are stand-alone pages on Twitter dedicated for sharing and comparing screenshots of young women at the World Cup.

"I feel for Qatar, because (Russia) has set the bar very, very high", Samoura, referring to the next World Cup in four years' time, said at a meeting with Valentina Matviyenko, speaker of the upper house of Russia's parliament. The image-hosting platform took down the gallery after critical response and even issued an apology for the same.
