  Cruise giant Norwegian sues Florida's top surgeon over the state's vaccine passport ban. The ban stops it protecting customers from COVID-19, it said.

The ban "inexplicably precludes this business from protecting the health and safety of its employees and customers against the extraordinary backdrop of a deadly pandemic," it said.

"

The statement added that any changes to the uniform must be approved by the IHF Council first and then be announced to the IHF Congress and reported to all IHF Member Federations.
