Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

London (ANI) - Memoirs of former US President George Bush have revealed how he once told Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that he is cold-blooded and not hot-blooded.

The incident had taken place at the Olympic opening ceremony in August 2008, when Bush complained to Putin about Russia's invasion of neighbouring Georgia.

Bush also stated that Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili is "hot-blooded", the Telegraph reported.

"I'm hot-blooded too," Putin retorted, according to Bush.

To which Bush said: "No, Vladimir, you're cold-blooded."
