Germany coach, Joachim Low, has banned his players from having sex during this summer’s World Cup.
Low does not want the players’ partners ruining his preparations in Russia, with players forced to ask for special permission to see their other halves and even their children.
But they will be banned from such contact during the tournament.
Social media will also be prohibited for the likes of Mesut Ozil, Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller and Marco Reus.
According to Gazetta dello Sport, Low will however allow the holders to drink, to help boost team spirits, with the boss insisting: “The team is more important than the ego.”
Germany have started their preparations for the World Cup by training in South Tyrol, in north-east Italy this week.
