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 - Pork DNA has reportedly been found in halal chicken sausages served in a primary school in central London.

Westminster Council confirmed that the sausages were from St Mary's Bryanston Square, a Church of England school.

Tests on a sample from Burdett Coutts School revealed the presence of lamb and pork DNA in lean minced beef, the BBC reports.

According to the report, the council said it decided to carry out tests for the presence of DNA from beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, goat and horse after the horsemeat scandal.

No horse DNA was found in the tests.

The items have been removed from all school meals and the contractor was asked not to use its meat supplier, the report said.
