Egyptian sumo wrestler sizes up world title

Now training in Japan, Abdurrahman, 19, hopes to become the first Arab to be crowned world champion.

    Sumo wrestling is not a sport you would usually associate with Egyptians. But this might just change.

    A 19-year-old Egyptian heavyweight is hoping to become the first Arab to be crowned world champion.

    Weighing 120kg, Abdurrahman has already won several championships. However, as Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal says in this report, he still has a lot to learn in the birthplace of the sport - Japan.
