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.

John McAfee expects release from jail ‘today’

London - British-born computer software pioneer John McAfee has said that he is expecting to be released from his Guatemala City cell.

In an interview with Sky News, McAfee said that he is ‘100% certain’ he will soon be heading for America.

“I think perhaps today but, you know, when you're dealing with the legal system you can never be sure, but as I understand it, I just met with immigration officials about half-an-hour or so ago and there should be news out later today and it should be today,” he said.

According to the report, the 67-year-old is currently being held in a Guatemalan detention centre after being arrested for making an illegal entry into the Central American country on December 5.

McAfee is wanted by authorities in neighbouring Belize as ‘a person of interest’ following the murder of his neighbour Gregory Faull a month ago, the report said.

He has lived in Belize since 2008, and has denied any involvement in Faull’s death and said that he went on the run for his own ‘safety’ because the authorities wanted to silence him.

“I cannot ever return to Belize ... there is no hope for my life if I am ever returned to Belize,” he said, adding: “If I am returned bad things will clearly happen to me.”
