No retraction on doping story

Le MondeContrary to what Real Madrid stated five days ago, French daily Le Monde has no intention of retracting its original story linking the club and three others (Barcelona, Valencia and Betis) with doctor Eufemiano Fuentes and allegations of blood doping.

The paper has published letters from all the clubs denying the allegations in accordance with French law's right to response, said the sports editor, Eric Collier. "This is not at all a retraction, he added. Real Madrid has initiated legal proceedings.
