Players in a Turkish football match broke their fast for Ramadan on the pitch, as nothing could stop them from grabbing some food after their fast.
A video sighted by LailasNews, showed Ankara Keciorengucu players eating bananas and dates during a stoppage in play during Tuesday’s match at Giresunspor in the TFF First League, Turkey’s second tier.
The players are seen in a clip shared by broadcaster beIN Sports kneeling on the floor, eating dates and bananas.

During the month of Ramadan, which began on Monday, fasting Muslims do not eat or drink during daylight hours.
Typically those participating will eat a meal before sunrise, Suhoor, and again once the evening call to prayer has sounded at sunset, Iftar.
Footballers have in the past found creative ways to be able to break their fast during matches.
