Former Iranian international and Bayern Munich midfielder Ali Karimi took on the Ice Bucket Challenge and posted the video on his Instagram on Friday.


 

The Asian Maradona, who recently hung up his boots, nominated Persepolis coach Ali Daei, film director and actor Reza Attaran and pop singer Maziar Fallahi to be next up.

The challenge, which was born in Massachusetts, comes from the former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates.

Frates was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, in 2012.

The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on one's head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research

If accepted, a bucket of ice water is dumped over the person's head and if rejected a fee of $100 must be paid.
