Sport Sir Craig Reedie is more laid-back in his approach than his predecessor at Wada

The new president of the World Anti-Doping Agency had a simple-sounding new year resolution: “I just want to make sport cleaner.” Sir Craig Reedie knows he will never eradicate doping. Just a month into his new role, he says: “People still cheat and that is regrettable.”

Duke Vin: 'Soundman' who brought sound systems to Britain

In 1955 Vincent "Duke Vin" Forbes launched the first Jamaican-style sound system on the British public; it was the prototype of the enormous sets of speakers on display each year at the Notting Hill carnival.

Sport on TV: Barnes finds family tree has several suprising branches

It has been a big week for racism, sadly, and for those who do nothing about it. This weekend sees an awareness drive by Kick It Out!, the body set up to combat racism in football. So it was appropriate that John Barnes should appear on Who Do You Think You Are? (BBC1, Wednesday). The Jamaican-born footballer was targeted by English crowds, and the photograph of him backheeling a banana off the pitch became iconic. Barnes was to find anti-colonialist activists among his ancestors, but he also found a man who incurred the wrath of a black figurehead. His family history proved almost as labyrinthine as that legendary mazy dribble through the Brazilian defence.
