VoiceBritish Cycling’s former head lodged file in Daily Mail safe• It contains a number of lies, alleges Mary Rourke QCDr Richard Freeman’s medical tribunal took an extraordinary twist on Friday when his lawyer made a legal request to the Daily Mail to hand over a secret affidavit from Shane Sutton, the former head coach of British Cycling and Team Sky, that she claimed was “totally inconsistent” with evidence Sutton had given to a parliamentary inquiry into doping in sport.
Dr Richard Freeman’s lawyer demands newspaper hands over Sutton affidavit
Mary O’Rourke, the QC acting for Freeman, said the affidavit was held in the managing editor of the newspaper’s safe as “an insurance policy against any potential claims for defamation by Sir Bradley Wiggins, Freeman or Sir Dave Brailsford” and that it contained “a number of lies”. Sutton had also been Wiggins’ personal coach, a key cog in his Tour de France victory in 2012, before the two men fell out.
