The video recorded by Al Jazeera at the World Youth Championships in Hungary shows teen Iranian wrestler Peyman waiting ringside to start his match when he is approached by his coach and told to forfeit the match.

This is the tearful moment a young wrestler was forced to fake an injury so he could forfeit a fight against his Israeli opponent.

The young wrestler begins to weep, insisting he be allowed to fight: “Let me go on the mat, I’ll beat him if you let me.”

Iran does not recognise Israel as a state and it is common for the country’s athletes not to compete against them at sporting events.
