TEHRAN – Iranian female karate player Hamideh Abbasali underwent a knee surgery on Sunday.

She suffered an injury in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo and failed to win Iran’s first-ever medal in karate in the women’s section in Olympics.

She will start her training after three months, Orthopaedist doctor Sohrab Keyhani said.
