Maria Sharapova to be reinstated as UN ambassador

Tennis star Maria Sharapova will be reinstated as a UN goodwill ambassador when her suspension for using a prohibited drug expires next April, a UN statement says.
It says that the UN is looking forward to working with her to discuss her role “at an appropriate date”.
The player admitted in March that she had taken the substance meldonium at the Australian Open in January.
She was subsequently banned for two years by an investigating tribunal.
But last month her suspension was reduced to 15 months after she filed an appeal.
