Blatter nennt WM-Vergabe an Katar "einen Fehler" - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Mögliche Bestechung durch das Emirat an die stimmberechtigten Mitglieder des Fifa-Exekutivkomitees wollte Blatter nicht kommentieren: "Nein, nein, das habe ich nie gesagt."

Important (& concerning) article on Jamaican anti-doping performance: Should form basis for global review of practice "In the wake of both recent achievements on the track and devastating positive tests off it, we need to believe that our athletes are clean and that our anti-doping program is independent, vigorous, and free from any semblance of conflicts of interest. This matter should be reviewed by the Cabinet in all urgency, and the necessary changes should be made to provide JADCO with the staff it needs to carry out world-class testing on Jamaica's world-class athletes."
