I read an article 'Football Envy at the UN' by Kofi Annan, in The Hindu, originally published in The Guardian.
Touching, to say the least.
Here is a man who is in such close proximity to the world's problems. He knows how difficult it is to mobilise, organise and motivate people to solve them, get the required funds, draw the attention of all those who can make a difference....
.......and he sees that Football achieves all that - apparently without effort! Alas only for football.
