US footballers tackle Ramadan

Football is not a sport one wants to play while fasting, but one high school team is doing just that.

    As the American football season gears up at high schools across the United States, one mostly Muslim team in the state of Michigan is facing an added challenge. 

    They are practising their drills in the gruelling heat, while fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
