  1. Borussia Dortmund head coach Peter Stoger has stressed that Usain Bolt has "a lot of work to do" to become a top-level footballer. The retired sprinter, who won eight Olympic gold medals, has always harboured hopes of playing for his beloved Manchester United. Bolt drew the world's media to the German club this weekend as he was involved in an open training session with Dortmund's first team on Friday, enjoying a session with those that were not selected for international duty. The world-record holder in the 100 metres was also training with South African side Mamelodi Sundowns in January and will participate in a charity match at Old Trafford in June. "It's all about procedure and movement, but the most important thing is that he had fun," Stoger told Sky Sports. "I think he is talented, but when he wants to play at a higher level, he clearly has a lot of work to do. "The physique he needs for his other sport is completely different from what he needs for football, but it was really fun for us. It was a pleasure for us to meet a guy like him and to work with him."

  2. Russia Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko has decided to temporarily stand down as president of the Russian Football Union. Mutko was banned from the Olympics for life in early December having been accused of running a huge Olympic doping programme. He is to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Tuesday against the decision by the International Olympic Committee and wishes to focus on those proceedings. A FIFA spokesperson said: "FIFA understands Mr Mutko's decision which was also taken in the best interest of the FIFA World Cup next summer. FIFA thanks Mr Mutko for this responsible step and for the work carried out so far for the World Cup. "Mr Mutko's decision will have no impact on the successful staging of the FIFA World Cup next summer, as FIFA, the Russian Government, RFU and the LOC [Local Organising Committee] continue their fruitful co-operation on the preparations for the FIFA World Cup according to plan. "In the coming days, FIFA will discuss with all relevant parties and agree on the next steps related to the LOC." It is expected that Mutko will be replaced as RFU president by Alexei Sorokin, the chief executive of Russia 2018.
