It has been announced that all athletes who will be competing in the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics in 2016 will have to do so in the nude. To be clothed - even to wear as little as a string - will be regarded as an insult to the Brazilian culture of baring breasts and bums when in public.
The committee is furthermore considering whether spectators will also have to be nude.
An announcement will be made at a later date.
Muslim states have already said that they regard such a rule as keeping their athletes away.
Another protester is the newly-founded 'World Hermaphrodites Unite' organization. Said a spokesperson: "This is nothing but to out us!"
