Morocco’s men’s football team have vowed to fast during the Olympics. However, their Dutch coach Pim Verbeek is worried about the effects Ramadhan will have on his team.

Morocco’s goalkeeper, Yassine Bounou, who also plays for the Spanish team Atletico Madrid said, "We must fast because this is an obligation and I think that God will help us on the day of the games.”

Morocco drew with Honduras 2-2 in today's opening match.
