Vice President of the European Parliament
Sport is something, more than business. It’s a “Fabric of Dream”, it’s a hope to improve the fate of millions of poor people, but also the nations, which didn’t win a lottery in the history. Athletes have often greater acceptance and authority, then us, the politicians- especially sport must be “clean”, without any dope and without the machinations of the unfair industry “bookmakers”.
