Following Betting Allegations, Betclic Removes Ads Featuring Karabatic
Following betting allegations, online bookmaker Betclic has decided to remove all advertisements featuring Montpellier handball player Nicolas Karabatic, according to Olivia Derreumaux of SPORT24.com. The France Gold Medal winner in London will not appear in any commercials for Betclic. His image "has even been removed from the company's website." Until the investigation is completed, the "financial impact remains limited for the player" since Betclic assured there was no "rupturing of the contract." Karabatic's other sponsors, including adidas, "have not commented" on the allegations (SPORT24.fr, 9/28).
