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.

Tokyo - A moderate earthquake measuring 5.9 on the Richter scale hit sea off Japan's Fukushima prefecture on the Honshu island on Sunday, said Japan Meteorological Agency(JMA).

The epicentre of the temblor, which struck at 11.04 pm (local time), was initially determined at 37.1 degrees north latitude, 141.3 degrees east longitude with a depth of 50 km, Xinhua reported.

Though tremors were felt in Tokyo, no alert for tsunami was issued.
