"No insurance".

Here are the facts:

1. The 2011 M-League season started on Jan 29, 2011.

2. AmAssurance agent Ikhwan Ibrahim sent the FA of Malaysia (FAM) an invoice on Nov 27, 2010.

3. The first payment to the insurance company was only made in April, 2011.

4. Negri Sembilan physiotherapist See Kim Leong passed away on Feb 5, 2011.

5. Kim Leong's wife Audrey McLeod has not received a single cent as she was told her husband was "not insured".

Players and officials in the M-League were not insured for the first four months of the 2011 season.

Read the insurance bungle and a widow in dire straits in today's Mailsport.

What if a national player had died on the field while playing for his state team or club?

But it was not all memorable.

    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
