In honour of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, messages will be aired on television and social media during Champions League games next week, UEFA General Secretary Theodore Theodoridis announced on Tuesday during a sports conference held in the UN's European headquarters. During his speech delivered at the UN, he promised to do more to advance human rights and shield female players from harassment.
