One of the most powerful figures in English football caused embarrassment yesterday by falling fully clothed into a swimmiing pool after an outburst in Qatar.
Sir Dave Richards... warned Qatar, a Muslim state... to lift restrictions on selling alcohol.
He fell into the hotel swimming pool on the way to dinner. Witnesses said Phil Gartside, the Bolton Wanderers chairman, pulled him out.
Mr. Gartside told BBC Sport... "Any suggestions he had a drink is nonsense. It's a dry place".
Or wet, if you fall in.
