Tamer Amin’s TV show suspended, Egypt makes African basketball championships

Akher Al Nahar has been suspended and host Tamer Amin’s license has been revoked after Amin suggested that the fecundity of Saeedis is directly linked to their need to put kids to work and bring in income, the Egyptian Supreme Council for Media Regulation said in a statement yesterday. The TV host apologized for his comments, saying on Friday that they were taken out of context.

Covid sends Egypt through to the African basketball championships: The Egyptian national basketball team automatically qualified for AfroBasket 2021 after Thursday’s match with Uganda was called off due to several Ugandan players testing positive for covid-19, KingFut reports. Egypt, which led Group E with six points prior to the game, was declared to have won the game by Fiba Africa after the game was shelved, sending them through to this summer’s championship, which will take place in Rwanda.

And while we’re on the subject of sport: The national football team have maintained their position at #49 in the Fifa world rankings in the first ranking of 2021.
