>> There is a video of it on YouTube

Jahan Pahlavan Takhti

There is a new display of an artwork by Iranian artist Khosrow Hassanzadeh at The British Museum to accompany 'Shah Abbas' exhibition. It focuses on Gholamreza Takhti, an Olympic champion and national hero of Iran. Takhti was a Jahan Pahlavan, a ?World Wrestler?, who died tragically young at the age of 37 in 1968. The affection that Iranians feel for him rests not only on his prowess as a sportsman but on his personality, his sense of fair play and his kindness.
