World Cup should not be held in Russia, Nick Clegg says

Russia should lose the right to host the 2018 World Cup as part of tougher sanctions following the plane crash in eastern Ukraine, Nick Clegg has said.

The UK deputy prime minister told the Sunday Times it was "unthinkable" that Russia should host the football event following the shooting down of a Malaysian passenger jet.

Western nations have accused Russia of arming rebels who allegedly shot down the plane, which Moscow denies.
