Athletics chief Sebastian Coe and the IAAF's treatment of controversial 100-meter world champion Justin Gatlin is "inhumane" and "unsportsmanlike," the athlete's agent told the BBC in a blistering attack.British athletics legend Coe – a two-time 1,500-meter Olympic champion – had told the BBC Sunday two-time drug cheat Gatlin's victory in the sport's most high-profile event in London, which was watched by over eight million viewers in Britain, was not the "perfect script". However, Gatlin's agent Renaldo Nehemiah, a former 110-meter hurdles world record holder, was scathing about Coe's remarks.Nehemiah, who won the 1984 Super Bowl with the San Francisco 49ers, said Coe and the IAAF should be more gracious and accept their rules allowed athletes like Gatlin to get a chance at redeeming themselves.
