Sir: Thank goodness Nigel Cubbage (letter, 14 May) has put me right on sport's contribution as an example to us all. From what I had gathered from the media I had thought such contributions to be petulant outbursts from losers, physical violence towards opponents on the field, verbal abuse from both players and spectators, the taking of illegal performance- enhancing substances and a multiplicity of bribes, bungs and bullying by everyone engaged in "sport". I now know this to be a scurrilous slur on sundry "beautiful games".
