UN suspends Sharapova as goodwill ambassador

LONDON: After losing contracts by Nike, Porsche and Tag Heuer, tennis star Maria Sharapova has been suspended as a goodwill ambassador by the United Nations. “The UN Development Programme (UNDP), which Sharapova became a goodwill ambassador of in February 2007, suspended the Russian tennis star until the outcome of the investigation into her case is known,” said a UN official. Sharapova is facing charges after admitting she tested positive for the banned substance meldonium at this year’s Australian Open. Sharapova’s work with the UN focused mainly on helping survivors of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.
