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.

Where was Charlie Chaplin born?

London - British intelligence officers found no record of Charlie Chaplin's birth when they probed him over over suspected Soviet ties, secret files have revealed.

The mystery of the silent film legend's origins emerged when the US asked Britain to probe his background after his exile from America in 1952 over suspected links to the Communist Party, the express.co.uk reported Friday.

Despite checking under his supposed alias, Israel Thornstein, MI5 officers found no documents confirming he was born in Walworth, south London in 1889.

They also dismissed claims he was born in France, according to papers released by The National Archives.

But they found no Communist ties and the files said that he held "little security significance" and "we are not satisfied there are reliable grounds for regarding him as a security risk". Chaplin died in 1977.
