The allegation against the basketball star comes amid heightened attention to domestic violence incidents involving professional athletes including NFL star Adrian Peterson, who was suspended on Tuesday for "abusive discipline" on his 4-year-old son. Police declined to elaborate on the details of the Howard investigation, which followed a prior probe of the same accusation in Florida. Entertainment news website TMZ said Howard is accused of beating his 6-year-old son with a belt buckle."The Cobb County Police Department's Crimes Against Children Unit reopened their investigation into the allegations against Mr. Howard," said Dana Pierce, a spokesman for the suburban Atlanta police department.

Cristiano Ronaldo remembered former Real Madrid great Alfredo Di Stefano on Monday when receiving his award for scoring the most the goals in the Spanish league last season. "I want to take advantage of this opportunity to say that it's too bad Don Alfredo Di Stefano can't be here to give me the award," Ronaldo said at the gala in the Spanish capital. Di Stefano died after a heart attack in July at the age of 88. The Argentine forward helped Madrid win five straight European Cup titles from 1956-60. He was voted European player of the year in 1957 and '59 and named Madrid's honorary president in 2000. Madrid club president Florentino Perez said on Saturday that Ronaldo was "a dignified heir to Di Stefano." Ronaldo said that he was humbled by the comparison. "I watched many videos of him because I didn't see him play (in person), and he was phenomenal," said Ronaldo. "Being connected to him is a privilege and an honor. It's something that motivates me to work more. I knew him personally since I arrived at Madrid, and to me he was an exceptional person." More»

Egypt’s other gold medals came in the women’s kumite under 61 kilograms and over 68 kilograms competitions, with Giana Lotfy securing the country’s first gold medal and Shymaa Abouel Yazed securing the second. Lotfy defeated Malaysian Syakilla Salni Jefry Krishnan to secure her victory, while Abouel Yazed outpaced Iran’s Hamideh Abbasali to win the gold medal. “This has been a dream for a long time…and to hear the national anthem…is something I am extremely proud of,” said Abouel Yazed following her victory.

New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs in an interview with federal agents probing a Florida anti-aging clinic at the center of baseball's doping scandal, the Miami Herald reported on Wednesday. The admission, if true, represents an about-turn for Rodriguez who has repeatedly denied the use of banned substances from the Miami-area Biogenesis clinic, even as he concluded last week a one-year suspension by Major League Baseball for violating the sport's doping program. But speaking to federal authorities in January, Rodriguez, known in the baseball world as A-Rod, admitted to buying and using hormone-filled syringes and creams from the clinic, the Herald reported, citing a 15-page summary of the meeting. His New York-based attorney, Joseph Tacopina, would not comment on the report, saying, "Grand jury secrecy law, which appears to have been violated, prevents me from answering one way or the other." The slugger, a three-time American League Most Valuable Player, told authorities he first met the clinic owner when trying to lose weight in the summer of 2010 and struggling with a knee injury, the newspaper said.

Egypt has withdrawn its application to host the 2015 African Cup of Nations over Ebola fears. Early this month, current hosts Morocco said they wanted the tournament to be postponed because of Ebola, but the Confederation of African Football (CAF) insisted it should be held as planned from 17 January to 8 February. Countries including Egypt, Ghana and South Africa reportedly expressed an interest in holding the tournament if Morocco withdraws. On Monday, Egypt's sports ministry withdrew their interest in holding the tournament. "After discussing the issue, Egypt will not ask to host the 2015 African Cup of Nations that is scheduled to be played in Morocco from 17 January to 8 February," read a statement released by the sports ministry on Monday. The Confederation of African Football has canceled all football in the three countries most affected by Ebola - Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone - until further notice, but says it is following the advice of the World Health Organisation that travel bans will not help curtail the outbreak. However, the request of countries wanting to host the tournament will be discussed at the next meeting of the CAF Executive Committee scheduled for 2 November in Algiers, on the sidelines of the second leg of the CAF Champions League final.

A ruthless Bayern Munich scored five goals in the first 35 minutes on their way to an astonishing 7-1 Champions League win at AS Roma on Tuesday that left the home players and supporters shell-shocked. Arjen Robben scored twice, while Mario Goetze, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller, from a penalty, also chipped in before halftime as the Bavarians exploited the many gaps left by the Roma defence in the Group E match. Gervinho pulled one back for Roma after halftime only for further goals from substitute Franck Ribery and Xherdan Shaqiri to give Bayern their biggest ever away win in Europe, while Roma equalled their heaviest ever defeat. It was Bayern's 12th match without defeat in all competitions and left them top of the group with nine points from three games, five clear of Roma. Manchester City have two points and CSKA Moscow one. Robben opened the floodgates in the ninth minute when he collected the ball on the edge of the area, jinked inside Ashley Cole and effortlessly curled his shot past Morgan De Sanctis. Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer stopped Gervinho's shot two minutes later, preventing a goal that could have dramatically changed the course of the game, and from then on it was all Bayern. More»

Egyptian Football Association (EFA) Vice President Hassan Farid ruled out the possibility of that Pharaohs' duo Ahmed Elmohamady and Sherif Ekrami faked injuries in order to miss the side's recent Botswana trip. The Pharaohs left Egypt on Tuesday without Ahly keeper Sherif Ekrami, Zamalek winger Hazem Emam, Smouha striker Hany El-Eguizi and Hull City's winger Ahmed Elmohamady – but several reports suggested that Elmohamady and Ekrami claimed they were injured to avoid the Botswana clash. The Ahly keeper underwent scans on Tuesday that revealed he hadn't suffered a serious injury. "I cannot believe that the two players claimed injury," Farid said in a TV programme on Wednesday. "Elmohamady is a professional player and he knows his duties well, while Ekrami is one of the best Egyptian keepers." Egypt will face Botswana, who also have no points, in Gaborone on Friday before hosting them five days later in Cairo. More»

Jerome Boateng struck in the final minute to give Bayern Munich a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the sides' opening Champions League game in Group E on Wednesday. Boateng scored with a wonderful half-volley that took a light deflection before flying inside the far post after the visitors failed to clear Arjen Robben's corner. "We had so many chances to score, but we wasted all of them until the last minute. The ball came absolutely perfectly to me and I thought to myself, this one I will hit into the roof of the net and that's what I did," the defender said after scoring against his former side. It was looking like goalkeeper Joe Hart's inspired performance would be enough to salvage a draw for the Premier League side, which went closest through David Silva's flying header wide of the post in the 63rd minute. "We fought hard all night against a good team and we had chances all night. We knew we were going to be in for a tough game," Hart said. "The goal's come from a deflection in the end, and Jerome has come back to haunt us." More»
