Sportsmen should avoid "smoking and womanising" if they want to be successful, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has said.

"From my footballing experience, I know that the following ingredients are important for the game; stamina, skill and teamwork.

"Stamina is critical because you do a lot of running. You must eat well, exercise and avoid alcohol, smoking and womanising," Museveni wrote on his Twitter page where he also shared pictures of his meeting with the country's national team, The Cranes, on Monday.

The Cranes qualified for the African Cup of Nations (Afcon) scheduled for Cameroon next year. This was after it won by just a goal against Cape Verde on Saturday.
