Fat cops get fit for World Cup

South Africa's police have launched a fitness regime to battle obesity, after worries were raised about their ability to keep fans safe at the World Cup.

Police commissioner Bheki Cele said new recruits should fit into the same-size uniform for their whole careers.

Officers needing a larger size will be given a year to slim down or face being kicked off the force, he said.

Earlier this month, a study found almost half the officers in Port Elizabeth were clinically obese.
