    British coach and ex-Corrie star BANNED for three years after admitting to fat-shaming and mocking disabled people

    A BRITISH Athletics coach has been banned for three years after admitting to misconduct charges including fat-shaming and mocking disabled people.Fuzz Caan, who has appeared in Coronation Street, was originally suspended by UK Athletics in June 2021.
    Fuzz Caan has received a three-year ban for misconduct
    The British coach has admitted to the charges against him
    It came after the organisation received a letter of complaint “signed by several individuals in the high jump community”.
    The decision meant he was unable to coach his athletes – including Morgan Lake and Emily Borthwick – at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
    An investigation was then carried out by UK Athletics and 12 charges were subsequently levelled at Caan.
    They included claims he “repeatedly swore and shouted” at an athlete “for a period of several minutes”.
    He was also said to have labelled an athlete a “f***ing idiot”, a para-athlete “fat and slow”, and a doctor a “f***wit”.
    Another startling allegation was that he “made fun of disabled people by doing an impression where he walked with a limp, held his arm bent and made noises whilst sticking his tongue out”.
    Caan, who helped Robbie Grabarz win a silver medal at the 2012 London Games, was also accused of calling his athletes by highly inappropriate names.
    They included “bad foot Gay” and “limp foot Christie”.
    Most read in Athletics
    Caan, who started working as a consultant at the Saudi Olympic Training Centre last year, was due to appear at a UK Athletics hearing into the charges this week.
    But a decision has now been reached without a hearing due to his admission of guilt.
    UK Athletics confirmed Caan’s coaching license will be suspended for three years – a period backdated from June 2021. More

    “The dad that won dined out on it for an entire school year.
    “Mo’s not a sprinter, that’s what it is, the parents’ race is always 100 metres.
    “People just assume Mo can run fast, but his running fast is sustained running over many laps.”
    He added: “I was like ‘oh no,’ and I had my spikes on, I thought ‘I’m ready for this.’

    “He was tagging me as well saying ‘have some of that.’ I can’t sprint.”

    The 22-year-old Spaniard fell on the final hurdle before crashing to the ground and whacking his head on the floor.
    Medical staff rushed to attend to the motionless Llopis, who was then shielded by a white tent.
    After several minutes of treatment, he was then carried off on a stretcher to applause from the Atakoy Arena crowd after a doctor gave a thumbs-up.
    The Spanish confederation confirmed Llopis was transported to hospital but was conscious.
    Late last night the federation posted an update.
    And thankfully it was good news, with them posting a tweet thanking everyone for their support with a video of Llopis speaking from a hospital bed.
    Llopis had won his semi-final for the event earlier in the day.
    His heart-wrenching fall came on the same day Brit Keely Hodgkinson won the Women’s 800m event.

    Hodgkinson could not improve on her own 800m record set last month, but nevertheless came away with gold from the event – dedicating her achievement to her late coach.
    The 21-year-old said: “I haven’t had time to process it but my old coach, Joe Galvin, passed away a few days ago. Really unexpected.
    “This one is definitely for him. He had a lot of belief in a 10-year-old me. That medal is for him.
    “I hope I have made him really proud. His wife Margaret, I know she will be proud of me as well.
    “I wanted to make the others in the race work for it. I’m really happy to defend my title.
    “I want to keep building on this, performing and bringing back medals. I’m living the dream.” More
