Top 10 Sporting Scandals. Ryan Giggs has hit the headlines after being revealed as the footballer who tried to use the court system to stop details of his alleged affair entering the public domain. And while mere adultery would never have got the Welshman close to the top 10 of our sporting scandals, his embarrassing attempts to stem the flow of information on the internet have made sure he and alleged mistress Imogen Thomas will always have their place in history. In drawing up our list of top 10 sporting scandals we have not just focused on drug cheats or other crimes against fair play. If we'd included those, then 1988 Olympic 100m 'champion' Ben Johnson, Formula One legend Michael Schumacher and the entire sport of cycling would be on the list. Instead, we've focused on those incidents which have caught the public imagination - and found their way all over the front pages as well as the back.
