"Pushy dad" hall-of-famer

A French man who admitted drugging a number of his children's tennis rivals has been given an eight-year jail term.

Christophe Fauviau, 46, a retired army officer, was convicted of manslaughter after one of the players died in a car crash after being drugged.

Fauviau doped the drinks of at least 27 players during matches against his son and daughter between 2000 and 2003.

He said he had become obsessed by his children’s tennis careers and asked the dead man’s parents for forgiveness. [BBC]
Includes a contender for “All-Europe Understatement of the Month”: the children’s tennis coach said he was “surprised by what had happened”.
