The swimsuit will be retired after the Asian Games and after their game with Kuwait for fifth place on Thursday (yesterday). The government allowed the controversial swimwear to be worn as Asian Games rules stipulate that a team’s uniform cannot be changed in the middle of the tournament.
The Straits Times reported that anyone found guilty of misusing the flag can be fined up to a maximum of $1,000.

Still on the subject of clothing, now here's a piece of clothing or rather under-clothing that might become popular with flyers - a radiation-shielding underwear.
According to The Star, it's a special kind of underwear - with a strategically placed fig leaf design - and the designer says it'll get you through the airport screeners with your dignity intact.
The inventor, Jeff Buske of Las Vegas, Nevada-Rocky Flats Gear says his invention uses a powdered metal that protects people's privacy when undergoing medical or security screenings. The underwear inserts are thin and confirm to the body contours, making it difficult to hide anything beneath them. The mix of tungsten and other metals do not set off metal detectors.
The men's design has a fig leaf while the design for women comes in the shape of clasped hands.
