Cameras cutting to beautiful women in stadium stands when there are breaks in play at the World Cup has been a stalwart of the tournament for years but soon no longer.

Euro News reports that FIFA has told television broadcasters to cease filming attractive women in the stands during games in a bid to fight “sexism”.

The decision came after feminists expressed anger online, particularly on twitter, at sites ranking countries according to how attractive their female fans were.

However, the decision to ban cutaways to attractive women during games at the World Cup has been met with dismay, with football fans venting their anger online, some stating that TV broadcasters should not refrain from filming beautiful women just to “placate a bunch of ugly feminists”.
