Here is one of the six Iranian women who dressed up as men to see Persepolis FC crowned champions for a record eleventh time.
Wearing a man’s wig and a fake beard, she joins in with the fans’ singing as her favourite team won 3-0 against Sepidrood Rasht.
Women are banned from entering stadiums in Iran, although FIFA President Gianni Infantino – who was also at the game – claims to have had assurances from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that there are plans to overturn this.
Here’s a picture of all six women together at the Azadi Stadium:
