Andrew Jennings Tribute | The Man Who Brought to the Forefront Corruption In Global Sport
Andrew Jennings, the British investigative journalist who exposed major corruption in FIFA and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), passed away after a brief, sudden illness. He was 78. Siddharth Saxena, senior journalist with the Times of India, collaborated with Jennings on a couple of stories highlighting corruption in football in the mid 2000s. He sits with Newsclick's Siddhanth Aney and Leslie Xavier to talk about the impact of Jennings' work in rooting out corrupt nexuses that run global sport. While his work and person was an inspiration for fellow journalists to emulate, his real legacy is the network of free and independent journalists he helped nourish, and who still strive to expose the ills marring big sport.
