The World Health Organization is urging governments to ban all advertising, promotion, and sponsorship of tobacco products at sporting events.
According to the WHO, comprehensive bans on tobacco advertising reduce the consumption of tobacco products, including among young people.
In a statement, the WHO said, "WHO urges governments to implement their domestic laws banning tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship in the strongest possible ways. This may include issuing penalties applicable under domestic laws and taking preventative action, such as by preventing screening of events that violate domestic laws."
