American pop star Pink has stepped forward to help the Norwegian Women’s Handball Team pay a fine that they were slapped with after refusing to wear bikini bottoms.

The European Handball Federation fined the team $1,765.28 (about GHC10,000) for wearing shorts instead of bikini bottoms as it is a violation of the desired dress code.
