TEHRAN, Nov 8 (AFP) – The Iranian basketball federation has banned its players from having tattoos like many of their foreign counterparts, the student-run news agency ISNA reported Tuesday.

“It has been noticed recently that some basketball players are copying foreign players and having themselves tattooed … which is against the morals (of the Islamic republic) and unacceptable,” the federation said.

It called, in a statement carried by ISNA, for players who have “committed such an act” to take rapid measures to “make them disappear so to avoid firmer measures” against them.
