Kazakh volleyball player Sabina Altynbekova so attractive nobody watches the sport anymore

A Kazakh volleyball player is facing a tough time from her team-mates because her mesmerising good looks are distracting fans from the game.

Sabina Altynbekova was just another 18-year-old girl before she turned up in the Taiwanese capital Taipei to compete for Kazakhstan in the Asian Under-19 Championships.

Now local media that would normally only write a couple of lines about the competition are devoting 10 page picture features about her and artists are turning out anime fantasies about her.
