Iranian footballer Sosha Makani has been suspended for six months after a picture of him wearing what appears to be a pair of yellow SpongeBob SquarePants trousers emerged on social media. The Iranian Football Federations Morality Committee deemed the outfit as inappropriate, but said Makani can appeal the ruling. Makani was arrested back in January after photos of him with various women he was not related to surfaced on social media.
