4 of South Africa's leading sports federations were banned yesterday, by the sports minister from bidding for, or hosting major international events for at least a year over their failures to create enough opportunities for black players.

South Africa’s Sports Minister made the announcement after receiving a report on "transformation" in South Africa's five biggest sports: Rugby, cricket, soccer, athletics and netball.

More than 2 decades after the end of apartheid, rugby, cricket, athletics and netball all missed targets they agreed on with the government.

Soccer was the only one to meet its target.
