Lord Coe's IAAF presidency campaign was helped by donation from Chelsea

Lord Coe's campaign for the IAAF presidency was helped by a donation from Chelsea, a spokesman for the peer has confirmed.

Coe is a long-time supporter of Chelsea and a paid consultant for the club - it appears on his House of Lord's register of interests - and the Chelsea board agreed to provide some funds for his campaign. The club was one of several private donors, and he also received £63,000 from UK Sport for his campaign.

A spokesman for Coe said the Chelsea donation had been agreed by the board and not the club's Russian owner Roman Abramovich.

The confirmation comes after Nick Davies, Coe's right-hand man at the IAAF, has stepped aside from his role as the director of the president's office while he is investigated by the IAAF's ethics commission.

Spurs forward ruled out for up to three months

Mauricio Pochettino expects Tottenham striker Clinton Njie to be out for two to three months with a knee injury.

Njie has undergone surgery after sustaining the injury in Spurs' Europa League victory over Monaco two weeks ago.

The Cameroon forward initially struggled with a hamstring problem when he arrived from Lyon in the summer and the 22-year-old is now expected to be on the sidelines until March.

"I don't know but we will expect maybe two months or two and a half," Pochettino said.

"You never know because every day it's about how the knee responds but maybe two months or a little bit more."

The setback leaves Tottenham even shorter of forward options with Harry Kane currently the club's only out-and-out first-team striker.
