Egypt Kung Fu star punished over protest sign

Kung Fu player Mohamed Ramadan banned from future tournaments after wearing T-shirt in solidarity with pro-Morsi sit-in.

    Mohamed Ramadan is a gold-medal winning Kung Fu fighter, now facing an all-out ban because of a T-shirt showing solidarity with sit-ins staged by supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi this summer.

    The T-shirt displayed the four-fingered symbol associated with the Rabaa al-Adawiya protest camps that was crushed by security forces on August 14, leaving hundreds dead.

    Ramadan wore the T-shirt as judges presented him with a gold medal at an international championship in Russia.

    He tells Al Jazeera his story.
