A female soccer fan paints Croatia's flag on her face after Croatia beat England in the semifinal game on Wednesday in Moscow. (Associated Press) FIFA, the global governing body of soccer, wants its television partners to stop zooming in on “hot women” in the crowd during matches in a bid to stamp out sexism in the sport, an official said. Federico Addiechi, head of FIFA's diversity program, called the plan "a normal evolution," and said broadcasts during the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia have already improved from the 2014 tournament in Brazil. “This is one of the activities that we definitely will have in the future – it’s a normal evolution," Addiechi said when asked whether it was now an official policy. “We have done it on a case-by-case basis when some cases arose -- and they were pretty evident.” The #WorldCup cameramen are the real heroes in Russia. pic.twitter.com/mALegq0wet— World Cup Girls (@Sport__WAGs) … [Read more...] about FIFA wants fewer TV shots of ‘hot’ female fans in bid to tackle sexism in soccer

They are a daily fixture in all the newspapers, especially the tabloids, with giant color photos and fact-files and breathless updates on every snippet of breaking news. And then, there is also the England soccer team. While the performance of England’s players has the country excitedly questioning whether a glorious run awaits, it is the antics of the infamous WAGs (wives and girlfriends) of the squad members that really gets headline writers salivating. “They have provided a welcome distraction for the torment our boys usually suffer at World Cups,” The Sun’s Mike Ridley wrote. “For more than a decade we have watched the WAGs ... of the England players with fascination.” With a matchup with … [Read more...] about England’s ‘WAGs’ once again take center stage at the World Cup

Tonight, we take you inside the Vatican, where Morley Safer explores some of the treasures, secrets and surprises of the Vatican Library. But we'll begin with Pope Francis, who made history, again, this month helping the United States and Cuba establish diplomatic relations for the first time in more than 50 years. "Francis" The pope has a talent for bringing people together. You can see it even in how he signs his name. Popes have a special way -- the name, followed by "p-p," short for papa, and the appropriate roman numeral. But this pope writes, "Francis," just Francis. Humility has made the former Jorge Bergoglio a star and a lot of his fans aren't even Catholic. But don't mistake humility for weakness. "Just plain Francis" is also being signed on orders to transform institutions fossilized … [Read more...] about 60 Minutes Presents: Inside the Vatican
