A photo and multimedia exhibition will be held in honour of Iranian cyclist Bahman Golbarnezhad, who was tragically killed at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

Golbarnezhad, 48, died after crashing during the C4-5 cycling road race in Pontal, a small peninsula and beach area in the Recreio dos Bandeirantes neighborhood, located in the West Zone of the city.

He suffered a cardiac arrest on the way to hospital after incurring a head injury following a collision with a rock while descending midway through the race on September 17.

An investigation has been launched into the circumstances of the fatality, with International Paralympic Committee (IPC) President Sir Philip Craven saying his death "cast a dark shadow" over the Games.

The exhibition will now be held in Iranian capital Tehran between November 3 and 7, the Iran National Paralympic Committee (IRI) has announced.

Around 100 photographs will be showcased, documenting Golbarnezhad's life and career in Para-sport.

He first took up cycling in 2002 and also competed at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Olympic and Paralympic athletes, officials and artists from Iran have also sent in short video messages in tribute to Golbarnezhad.

Other athletes from around the world have been invited to send in their videos, which they can do via the IPC communications team before October 31.

IRI secretary general Masoud Ashraf hopes the collective effort will "create a global thinking and share a common understanding about this accident".
