Cycling Wada: Anti-doping campaigner Beckie Scott says officials tried ʼto bullyʼ her The chair of the World AntiDoping Agencyʼs (Wada) Athlete Committee says some of the organisationʼs most senior officials tried to "bully" her over her opposition to Russian reinstatement. Beckie Scott told the BBC she was "treated with disrespect" at a recent meeting and faced "inappropriate" comments and gestures from some members of Wadaʼs executive committee. The Canadian former Olympic cross-country skiing champion resigned from a Wada panel last month in

protest at its highly controversial recommendation to end the suspension of Russia from international competition after a state-sponsored doping scandal. In her first interview since stepping down, Scott said the treatment she faced was "indicative of a general attitude of dismissal and belittling of the athlete voice". In a statement, Wada admitted "tensions were running high" at last monthʼs meeting, and that the strong views on both sides of the debate "do affect the tone and atmosphere" but "the athletesʼ voice was clearly heard".

Germanyʼs Interior Ministry announced on Friday that it will extend migration controls at borders with Austria and Denmark, which were reintroduced in several parts of the normally passport-free Schengen area after the European migrant crisis of 2015. The extension is set to begin on November 12, one day after they were set to expire, and apply for six months. German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer based the new measure on the argument that illegal secondary migration was still too high and that border protection of the European Unionʼs external borders was still lacking.

Sports Joachim Löw defends Nations League after Jürgen Klopp criticism After Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp dismissed the Nations League as ʼsenselessʼ, Joachim Löw has leapt to the defense of the new competition. The Germany boss says his team relish games against high-profile opponents. With Germany training in front of 5,000 fans in Berlin on Tuesday, ahead of Nations League trips to the Netherlands and France, Löw sang the praises of UEFAʼs new format. "For us, for me as national coach, the Nations League is a good invention," he said Tuesday in Germanyʼs capital.

"Because we play against top nations, because itʼs for something. It is a competition. That is sometimes preferable to me in this phase than to play against the really small countries." Löw was reacting after Klopp revealed his disdain for the tournament, which he called "the most senseless competition in the world." The additional competition, introduced this year, replaces several friendly games but the fact that games are genuinely competetive further burdens national team players, according to Liverpoolʼs German boss: "We have to begin to think of the players," Klopp said.

Every morning Dembo Cisse, a sturdily-built 21-year old from Guinea, waits for the car to pick him up. He and two others, who live in the same apartment that belongs to Italyʼs privatized migrant reception system, get in the vehicle. The old family car then heads from Oleggio, a small town in the northern Italian region of Piedmont, to an agricultural field nearby. But Dembo and his companions are not off to work in the food supply chain, dominated by large-scale distributors who require ever lower prices and therefore cheap labor — which many of their fellow Africans provide for lack of better options. Read more: Italy tells refugees: Donʼt risk the journey The carʼs driver is Raffaele DʼAcunto, known as Lello, the areaʼs first organic farmer, now retired, who decided to set up a small-scale agricultural company to make organic produce and sell it on the local market.
