'Celebrity status' for Iran fans in Brazil

Shahrouz Fakhimi is an Iranian-Australian attending the World Cup in Brazil. He says it's a rare chance for people from around the world to meet Iranians on friendly terms.

Shahrouz Fakhimi moved to Australia from Iran when he was a young boy but his family still speaks Farsi and his first football love is Iran.

Fakhimi travelled to Brazil with his two cousins and all three are revelling in the party atmosphere where they say Iranian supporters are treated like celebrities by the locals.
