Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Four-time world champion Daiya Seto has been suspended for the rest of the year by the Japan Swimming Federation after having an extra-marital affair.

The 26-year-old has been banned for breaching the governing body’s sportsmanlike conduct standard.

He will be eligible to compete at the delayed Tokyo Olympics in 2021.

Seto won Olympic 400m individual medley bronze in Rio four years ago.

“I think my apology is to continue swimming, restoring the trust of my family, who have been deeply hurt by my irresponsible behaviour,” Seto said.

“I would like to seriously face swimming with the determination to start over so that my family and everyone will recognise me as a swimmer again.”
