Video: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad scores an impressive goal

It’s political football

Here’s a sentence we never expected to write on OTP: The video above shows what happens when the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, hooked up for a kickabout.

The duo were supposedly discussing Iranian investment in the South American nation, but there was still time for a bit of footy.

Ahmadinejad actually scores a very nice goal, although OTP reader Dan O’Connor (thanks for the tip) ponders whether the goalkeeper might have been promised his own little slice of the $287m investment if the President got on the scoresheet!

As far as we know, there were no assaults from Senor Morales on this occasion.
