BBC sports commentator Jacqui Oatley has revealed how her seven-year-old daughter was "told to play Hula Hoops" instead of football because the boys "wouldn't pass to girls". Speaking on Good Morning Britain this morning, the seasoned broadcaster described how she had first dropped off her four-year-old son to football before taking her elder child to another class at the same centre. But when she arrived to pick her up from the hour-long class, she was told: "Oh, we never got to play". "The boys wouldn't pass to us so the coach told us to go over there and play with the Hula Hoops," her daughter told her. Ms Oatley, who made her name as the first female football commentator in England, immediately lodged a complaint with the manager. "You're kidding," the 44-year-old told presenters. "Luckily I was still in the club so I complained straight to the manager, they said it would never happen again."

YANGON (Reuters) - Contestants ran a stiletto race and swirled hula hoops at a park in Myanmar's biggest city on Sunday in the Drag Olympics as a highlight of the Yangon Pride festival. The attendance of an estimated 2,000 people at the Thakin Mya Park was a sign of change in a predominantly Buddhist country where traditionalism is strong and homosexuality is a crime under a law inherited from British colonialists, organisers said. It was the fifth time that the festival has been held, but only the second year it has happened in a public place. "When we started this, people did not really dare to come to this kind of festival," said Hla Mat Tun, a co-director of the festival from the &Proud group. "Now you see a lot of young people. Young people are more proud and out and encouraged and empowered."
