Persson gets 18-month ban

Danish player Joachim Persson has been suspended for 18 months after breaching the sport’s code of conduct in relation to betting and irregular match results, the Badminton World Federation said yesterday. The former world No. 6 was found guilty of four code violations, including failing to report an approach to engage in conduct that would violate the sport’s betting rules. The 35-year-old was also charged with not cooperating with a BWF probe and not fully disclosing information requested by the governing body.
