From Match Fixing to Murder

Officials of football's world governing body, FIFA,are arrested in dramatic dawn raids in Switzerland and America. Sport has, once again, encountered the law. From Match Fixing to Murder looks at 101 diverse cases involving sport or sporting personalities that have ended up before courts or tribunals: from the 'body in the trunk 'murder by a former Wimbledon finalist to the fixing of baseball's 1919 World Series; from a transsexual tennis player seeking to play in the women's singles at the US Open to a wife's claim in the divorce courts that 'golf was his mistress'. Written in an entertaining style for the general sports fan,the book includes football's Eric Cantona, Bobby Moore andJohn Terry; Tony Greig and Ian Botham from cricket; golfersTiger Woods and Rory McIlroy; Lewis Hamilton from motor racing; jockeys Lester Piggott and Kieren Fallon; rugby's JPR Williams; and cyclist Lance Armstrong. All have contributed,some reluctantly, to the history of sporting encounters with the law.
