- From the section Football
Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba defends the amount of money that has been spent by his charity, the Didier Drogba Foundation, following claims in the Daily Mail that just £14,115 out of £1.7m donated to the charity had gone to help causes in Africa.
In a statement, the Daily Mail said that it "stands by every word of this important story".
The Charity Commission said it wanted "further information" about the foundation's spending plans and would look into "allegations that the charity has provided misleading information to donors and the public".
