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.

Madrid -  Former Real Madrid captain Jose Maria Zarraga died late Tuesday at the age of 81, the football club said.

Zarraga, who was born in 1930 in the Basque country, began his career with Las Arenas Getxo, before signing for Real Madrid in 1949. After spending two years in Madrid's B team, he was promoted to the first team squad.

He spent 13 years at the club, making 306 appearances, scoring 96 goals and forming part of the group of players that helped Real Madrid win five successive European Cups between 1956 and 1960, Xinhua reported.

Zarraga also made eight appearances for the Spanish national team.

Real Madrid observed a minute's silence and the team wore black armbands as a mark of respect in Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg against APOEL Nicosia at the Santiago Bernabeu.
