To Nick: 
Z. would have been allowed to collect the medal and he was even invited by a 
Fifa official, but he refused.


In which case I think he was probably right. The French supporters in the 
ground hadn't had the benefit of seeing the incident replayed, and clearly 
(mistakenly) thought the sending off unjustified - I think his appearance 
would've been provocative. It is a terrible shame to see a great sportsman 
end his career in such a way, and I do worry for him - this will surely 
haunt him forever. 
Just as well he didn't play cricket - I don't think he could've survived the 
"sledging" for long.
