BBC Sport - Paolo Di Canio will not answer questions about his political beliefs

Di Canio will not talk about politics

Paolo Di Canio refuses to answer questions from reporters on whether he is a fascist during his first news conference as Sunderland head coach.

The former West Ham player's appointment prompted the resignation of ex-Foreign Secretary David Miliband from the club's board because of Di Canio's "past political statements", but the club issued a statement saying the claims are insulting to both the "integrity of the club" and their new manager.
