We discuss the Iran-Russia relationship after Tehran ends Moscow’s access to its airbases and profile Nicolas Sarkozy as the former French president prepares for another tilt at his nation’s top office. We also explore what the defence pact between Finland and the US might look like. Plus: after disgraced US swimmer Ryan Lochte loses lucrative deals with Speedo, Ralph Lauren and others we ponder the perils of big sporting sponsorships.
