Former Female Footballer Of The Year stripped



The former African women’s “Footballer of the Year” Genoveva Anonma has opened up to the BBC about the embarrassing treatment she received from African football authorities when they asked her to strip down naked to prove she was a woman.
BBC Sportshour‘s Sam Sheringham spoke to Genoveva about that extremely painful event, and she said;
“I don’t know how they usually do it, but they kept accusing me. Because I’m quite energetic and very strong they say it was impossible that I could be a woman. I don’t know what I did to make them think I’m a man. They didn’t do any hospital tests. I was hoping they would call me to tell me they were taking me to a hospital to do tests – but they never did. I’ve never had a single apology
Rival teams had questioned Genoveva Anonma’s gender but instead of instigating proper medical gender tests, they simply forced her to strip naked straight after Equatorial Guinea won the Africa Cup of Nations.
Last year, Equatorial Guinea star and one of Africa’s leading female footballers,  made headlines when she called for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations to be cancelled to avoid spreading the Ebola virus to her home country.
