General view of the Olympic Aquatics Stadium at the Olympic Park which will host the swimming events during Rio 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 7, 2016The doping scandal engulfing Russian athletics and suggestions it could also taint the country's swimmers were on the minds of US swimmers as they prepared Friday for the start of their Olympic trials. Two-time Olympic medallist Elizabeth Beisel said she was "definitely not" confident of a level playing field in Rio. FINA, swimming's world governing body, said this month they would investigate "very serious allegations" made in a joint newspaper probe by The Times in Britain and Frankfurter Allgemeine in Germany which alleged that two men at the center of the athletics doping allegations were said to have offered to exempt Russian swimmers from drug testing in return for an annual fee.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said it was up Jonathan Hill, Britain's EU commissioner, whether to stay in office following the UK vote to leave the European Union, Germany's Bild newspaper reported on Saturday. Juncker will lead a meeting of the EU's 28 commissioners on Monday, including Hill, a key ally of British Prime Minister David Cameron, who on Friday announced his plans to resign by October. "That is primarily a personal decision for Lord Hill, whom I admire greatly as an experienced politician," the paper quoted Juncker as saying, when asked about Hill's future after the British referendum.

European Commissioner for Financial Services, Jonathan Hill, speaks during a Thomson Reuters Newsmaker eventBy Francesco Guarascio BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Britain's European commissioner for financial services, Jonathan Hill, should consider resigning after his country voted to leave the EU, the head of the European Parliament's economic committee said on Friday. Roberto Gualtieri, a centre-left Italian MEP, also said British deputies might need to reconsider senior positions they held in the assembly before Britain formally withdrew from the EU. "I have built a relationship of friendship with Hill but it is obvious that it would be problematic if Hill maintained his role until the end of Britain's withdrawal procedure," he told Reuters in an interview.
