Sportsworld talks to Pele, the Fifa
footballer of the century
Sportsworld looks ahead to Copa America, the world's longest running international football tournament.

Andy Richardson reports on why hosts Venezuela have high hopes despite a relatively poor international reputation.

The USA are at the Copa America for the first time. Sportsworld took the opportunity to speak to Pele, the Fifa footballer of the century about his hopes for the future of football in the US.

Winter Olympic hopefuls

The International Olympic Committee will soon decide which city will host the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Three cities, Sochi in Russia, Salzberg in Austria and Pyongchang in the Republic of Korea, are vying for the honour of holding the 22nd winter games.

Sportsworld's Wayne Hay weighs up the competing candidates.

Baseball Nation

The South American nation may be preparing to host the region's footballing elite, but many of the locals have another game on their mind.

Football is not the national sport of Venezuela; that honour goes to baseball.
