Barbie releases first hijab-wearing doll inspired by Olympic fencer

The hijab-wearing Barbie, produced by company Mattel, is part of Barbie's "Shero" line which recognises women "who break boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls", and will go on sale in 2018, the company said.

Ibtihaj Muhammad made history in Rio last year as the first US Olympian to represent her country wearing a hijab, after earlier winning a gold medal in 2014 at the world fencing championships in Russia.
