Nick Clegg has joined calls for Russia to be stripped of the 2018 World Cup over the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.
The deputy prime minister said the "beautiful game" could not be "marred by the ugly aggression of Russia", claiming it was "unthinkable" that the tournament could go ahead in the country.
Western leaders have accused Russia of arming the rebels in eastern Ukraine who have been widely blamed for shooting down the airliner, leaving 298 people dead.
Football's governing body Fifa rejected calls from some German politicians to review the decision, claiming the competition could be a "force for good".
Mr Clegg also said Russia's first Formula 1 Grand Prix in October should be cancelled, but F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone insists the race in Sochi will go ahead.
The mother of the three Australian children killed on flight MH17 told a memorial service her "arms would always be reaching for them."
A woman has apparently posted pictures of herself on social media with mascara looted from the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash site.
A large section of plane wreckage and everyday carry-on items like chocolates remain scattered among the wild flowers at the crash site.
