IAAF president Lord Coe ends 38-year ambassadorial role with Nike

IAAF president Lord Coe has ended his 38-year ambassadorial role with US sportswear giant Nike.

It follows conflict of interest claims over the 2021 World Championships going to Eugene, Oregon, where Nike is based.

Athletics' governing body said Coe could remain in the role but he said it was "a distraction to the 18-hour days we are working to steady the ship".
