Iranian footballers' poll protest


Six members of the Iranian football team have used a televised match to protest about the presidential election result.

They were wearing green wristbands, thought to be a symbol of their support for the opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi.

The BBC's Jon Leyne, in Tehran, gave his reaction to the gesture which was seen on Iranian state television.
