Broadcasters have been ordered to stop their cameras zooming in on “hot women” in the crowd at football matches, Fifa’s diversity boss says.
FIFA says football’s world governing body needed to help tackle sexism at the World Cup.
Anti-discrimination group Fare Network says sexism has been the biggest problem at Russia 2018.
It has been monitoring games and says it has “documented more than 30 cases”.
Before the tournament, there were concerns that homophobia and racism would be the major areas of concern but the Fare Network say sexism was the main focus of discrimination logged by his team – mainly of Russian women being “accosted in the streets” by male fans.
Meanwhile, Croatia meets France in the World Cup final at 3 am next Monday.
You can watch the match currently on FBC TV.
