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.

Johannesburg - Argentine football great Diego Maradona has become a father again after his long-time partner Veronica Ojeda gave birth to a baby boy on Wednesday at a Buenos Aires hospital.

According to Maradona’s lawyer Jorge Auruccio, the baby has been named Diego Fernando Maradona Ojeda, weighed 3.2 kg and is enjoying good health with the mother, Sport24 reports.

Auruccio said that Maradona, who was in Dubai, has been keeping tabs on everything, including the state of health of his partner and child.

The 52-year-old Maradona has two daughters, Dalma and Giannina, from his marriage with ex-wife Claudia Vallafane, the report added.

The Argentine football great has two other children he has never recognised as his, although courts in paternity cases have ruled he's the father.
