Premier League chairman Sir Dave Richards suffered an unfortunate day at a conference in Qatar starting when some controversial remarks caused consternation - and ending when he fell face first into a pool.

Richards claimed this morning that FIFA and UEFA had "stolen" football from England - comments which the Premier League moved quickly to distance themselves from.

The plain-speaking Richards then told the International Sport Security Conference that Qatar must makes the sale of beer freely available at the 2022 World Cup or face a boycott by fans.
