The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

A Swedish court found for­mer na­tional track and field team man­ager Ulf Karls­son guilty of ag­gra­vated li­bel against Manch­ester United striker Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic yes­ter­day for sug­gest­ing he used per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing sub­stances. The district court in Karl­stad or­dered Karls­son to pay a fine of 24,000 Swedish crowns for com­ments, at an April 2016 panel dis­cus­sion, about what he called a sud­den weight gain by the 35-year-old, who is Swe­den’s top goalscorer. “The court’s opin­ion is that in the con­text of what was said Ulf Karls­son gave the im­pres­sion that Zla­tan was dop­ing dur­ing his time at (Ital­ian club) Ju­ven­tus.”
