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.

New Delhi -  The US Friday apologised to Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan for "an inconvenience" experienced by him at the White Plains airport in New York while on a visit.

Khan was in the US on the invitation of Yale University, which honoured him. But before reaching Yale, Khan was detained for one-and-half hours at White Plains for secondary security  checks by the US Customs and Border Patrol agency.

The US Embassy here issued a statement Friday evening apologising for the incident.

"Please allow me on behalf of our diplomatic mission in India to apologize if Mr. Shah Rukh Khan experienced an inconvenience or delay yesterday in White Plains, New York, on his way to  Yale University," the US embassy spokesperson, Peter Vrooman, told reporters here.
