Athletes not my friends - Van Commenee
- From the section Athletics
UK Athletics' coach Charles van Commenee explains that he does not have friendships with the athletes to maintain a professional distance.
The Dutchman insists his strained relationship with Britain's reigning world triple jump champion Phillips Idowu will not effect the team's performance at the World Championships in Daegu.
The pair have yet to resolve their differences after Idowu was accused of using Twitter to announce he was pulling out of the European Team Championships in June.
