UEFA has refused a request from Munich’s Mayor for a stadium to be lit in rainbow colours ahead of Germany’s Euro 2020 clash against Hungary.

UEFA says the decision was consistent with being a “politically and religiously neutral organisation”.

The Mayor says he wants to highlight recent legislation in Hungary that bans school materials that promote homosexuality and gender change.

“I would have been happy if the stadium had been lit up in these colours,” Germany coach Joachim Loew said.
