A new study shows that men are better than women making after a fight. The research was conducted a team Harvard University in the USA. It looked the differences how men and women made up each after same-sex sporting events. Lead author the research, professor Joyce Benenson, concluded that men spend a longer time and put more effort making up with their male sporting foes than women did with their female opponents. The researchers analysed recordings tennis, table tennis, badminton and boxing involving men and women from 44 countries. They found that men spent considerably more time than women shaking hands and physically embracing.

Professor Benenson said she was surprised her findings, especially how women spent so little time making up their rivals. She said: "What you'll see is that many times, females brush their fingers each other….You're expected the sport to do something but [ women] it's so frosty." This was great contrast to men. Benenson observed that: "With the males, even a handshake, you can see the warmth, the tightness it." She added: "I expected this would be the least strong boxing because you try to kill the other person, but it's the strongest this sport. There really is this sense of love your opponent, which is my understanding."
