Fat-fingered sumo wrestlers to be given iPads

275x250.jpgSumo wrestlers in Japan are to be issued with iPads -- because their fingers are so fat they struggle to use normal-sized phones.

The Japan Sumo Association (JSA) is said to dishing out the Apple tablet computers in 51 wrestling ‘stables’ to help the athletes keep in touch better.

At the moment the larger-than-life wrestlers, with larger-than-life hands, have problems pressing buttons on small phones and therefore receiving emails on-the-go.

A spokesperson from the JSA said: "We will hand out the newest iPads to all the sumo stables to swiftly communicate what we need to."

Given the typical sumo wrestler consumes over 20,000 calories per day we hope they don't end up eating them because they have a image of an apple on the back.
