The head of European athletics has called on Frank Fredericks to step down from the world athletics' (IAAF) federation council pending an investigation into allegations he accepted payments before the awarding of the 2016 Olympics to Rio de Janeiro.A statement issued on Wednesday by Svein Arne Hansen, who does not name Fredericks but clearly refers to his case, comes a day after IAAF president Sebastian Coe said the Namibian would stay on the council while the ethics board decides if an investigation is necessary.As well as being in charge of European Athletics, Hansen, like Fredericks, is an IAAF Council member.
