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.

Man U's Tunnicliffe arrested on suspicion of drunken-driving after smashing £60K car

London - Manchester United's striker Ryan Tunnicliffe was arrested on suspicion of drunken-driving, after he smashed a 60,000 pound car within hours of getting the keys.

The 19-year-old midfielder was breath-analysed and arrested after he lost control of the luxury black Range Rover as he took it for a spin round an industrial estate.

He allegedly hurtled into a stationary van, shunting it 30ft into a wall. One onlooker said the young Red Devil looked "white as a ghost" as cops raced to the scene in Heywood, Manchester.

"He skidded on the wet road. A mate told me he'd only just picked up the keys. He hit a van and pushed it into a wall, making a terrible screeching sound," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.

The onlooker, who said the speed limit was 30mph, added: "He's hit it with real force because both vehicles looked like write-offs. Ryan looked really shaken up."

Police confirmed that a driver had been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving.

Tunnicliffe's dad wagered 100 pounds at 100-1 when he was nine that he would one day play for United's first team. He came on as a 77th-minute substitute for Wayne Rooney in a cup match last month, the report said.
