UEFA will not disqualify Real Madrid from the Champions League



Despite fierce criticism from UEFA towards the Spanish clubs who remain intent on the creation of a breakaway Super League, Europe’s governing body for football will not disqualify Real Madrid from this season’s Champions League.

As a result, Los Blancos’ semi final tie with Chelsea will go ahead as planned.

Although UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin hinted that it was possible that the tie wouldn’t go ahead, the Executive Committee does not have the power to sanction Real Madrid, so Zinedine Zidane’s team can continue to aspire to reaching the final.

It remains to be seen if UEFA take any disciplinary measure, such as opening a case against Real Madrid, there is no chance of them being excluded.

Ghana disqualified from 4x100m World Relays Final



Ghana’s 4x100m men’s relay team were disqualified from the World Relays final after breaking changeover rules.

The team initially finished third in the final behind Brazil and South Africa with a time of 39.11s but minutes after the race and time confirmations, drama ensued as Brazil and Ghana were disqualified.

Ghana’s team was disqualified after breaking changeover rules. The final changeover took place outside the authorized zone.

Ghana’s disqualification came as a result of a late changeover – Rule TR 24.7 between the pair of Azamati and Joseph Manu.

In the process, it means South Africa, Italy, Japan and Denmark were the only four out of eight competing teams to record times in the men’s 4x100m.

On a slightly brighter side, the decision is subject to an appeal from team Ghana.

The quartet of Benjamin Azamati, Safo-Antwi, Joseph Paul-Amoah and Joseph Manu simultaneously have already secured Ghana a place at the Olympic Games and the World Athletic Championship in the heats on Saturday.
