After cricket, match-fixing has come to wresting. Indian wrestler Sushil Kumar reveals that he was offered crores of rupees to lose his final bout against Alan Gogaev at the Wrestling World Championships in Moscow three years ago.
The double Olympic medalist says he refused the offer and went on to win the bout 3-1. Sushil further told that the offer was communicated to one of India's foreign coaches.
"A member of my entourage came up to me and said they want to talk about the bout...when he explained the whole thing, I was aghast, said Sushil, according to a report in The Times of India.
