FIFA's diversity chief Federico Addiechi has said the organisation will talk with broadcasters and its own TV production team to show fewer shots of attractive women.

He said: 'We've done it with individual broadcasters. "We've done it with our host broadcast services", Addiechi said, via the BBC.

The victims had included Russian women harassed by fans and television reporters who had been accosted while broadcasting.

Powar spoke of "an interesting tournament" in which fears of racism from Russian fans had not materialized, saying: "The Russian people played a magnificent role, there were no issues from Russians to report".

When asked if this approach will become an official policy for future events to come, he said: "This is one of the activities we definitely will have in future - it's a normal evolution".

Still, FIFA did impose fines during the tournament on soccer federations including Serbia, Russia and Poland for racist, nationalist and offensive banners displayed by fans at games.

Though Mr Powar added that the real number of incidents is likely 10 times higher. All were young women.

Curiously, an Argentine was also in charge of officiating duties the last time that France made the World Cup final.

Another Argentine referee, Horacio Elizando, refereed both the opener and the final at the 2006 World Cup.
