Spot the drug cheats
Forget the Russian linesman and whether or not the ball crossed the line and all that malarkey, it has now been revealed that three of West Germany’s team in the famous 1966 World Cup final failed drug tests after the game.
Historians found a letter from FIFA revealing the test failures while sorting through documents at Berlin’s Humboldt University. The letter, which was dated November 29, 1966, was written by FIFA’s Mihailo Andrejevic and sent to Max Danz, the president of the West German Athletics Federation.
