International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) President, Sebastian Coe has joined the World football governing body, FIFA and the Confederations of African Football (CAF) in sending messages of condolence to Sierra Leoneans for the recent mudslide and flood disaster in the country.
Coe letter reads: “Dear President and friend, I was so very sorry for the awful events in your country over the last few days. I wanted to place on record my sincere sympathies for the suffering. I know, I speak for the whole athletics family when I send my best wishes. We also stand ready if there is anything we can do to help you in this difficult time.”
The IAAF boss message came just days after both Gianni Infantino’s of FIFA and Ahmad Ahmad of CAF who also expressed their deepest sympathies on behalf of their respective Association.
Manchester United legend and former England skipper, David Beckham also paid tributes to the victims and in his message the former Real Madrid man stated that his thoughts are with all those affected by the devastating flooding and mudslides in Sierra Leone.
