The corruption scandal plaguing athletics is worse than the one faced by football, says four-time Olympic gold medallist Michael Johnson. Three senior IAAF officials were banned for life for alleged doping breaches, and Russia is currently banned from all athletics competitions following accusations of widespread doping. Asked how the scandal facing athletics compared to that of Fifa, Johnson said: "If you think about the victims, it is absolutely worse." Fifa, the body that governs world football, is also in crisis following a series of damaging corruption claims. Its president, Sepp Blatter, has been banned for eight years for breaching ethics rules.
