The Japan Sumo Association is distributing about 60 iPads among all the 51 training stables and top association officials from this week.
Why? Because the sumo association believe the iPad is big enough to cater for wrestlers' fat fingers, unlike the smaller keys on mobile phones, according to reports.
The sport's powers-that-be are hoping, by introducing this latest technology, sharing of information among sumo leaders will be improved.
Although it is a non-story, I can only hope these anonymous NHS managers don't take it into their heads to distribute iPads to anyone recorded obese. Stranger things have happened within our heathcare system.
