Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars 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.

Manchester City's Toure hoping to banish drugs ban hell

London - Manchester City’s Ivorian striker Kolo Toure hopes to banish the memory of his drugs ban hell by helping the club to this year’s Premier League title.

Toure's career was in turmoil a year ago following a failed dope test.

Toure, a center back, 30, took his wife's slimming pills and was banned for six months.

But now the ex-City skipper hopes to play a key part in the run-in.

The Sun quoted him, as saying: "I'm very happy today. I was really angry back then. What happened made me a better person, a stronger person.”
