A fear of being filmed or teased about their body are among the reasons a majority of Swedish school children do not shower after sports lessons, a Swedish Radio survey has revealed.

More than 3,200 students from 80 schools responded to the questionnaire, with 60 percent saying they do not always shower after participating in sports lessons.

Other reasons students have for not showering included being uncomfortable about showing their bodies and the showers themselves not being clean.

A lack of time to shower, dress and make it to the next lesson on time was another factor.
