• Coe says ‘every country’ must cooperate with police


    DOHA: Sebastian Coe on Friday (Saturday in Manila) urged “every country” to cooperate with a French police investigation into alleged athletics corruption. The embattled president of the IAAF was speaking in Doha after learning that Senegal had earlier in the day apparently ruled out extraditing Papa Massata Diack — who is accused of blackmailing athletes who failed drug tests — to France. Speaking at a press conference where he found out the news about the refusal to extradite, Coe insisted the police needed full cooperation from those under suspicion. Papa Massata Diack is the son of Coe’s disgraced predecessor, Lamine Diack, who stood down as world athletics president in August before being charged with corruption by French judges.
