The US National Basketball Association (NBA) has approved the sale of the New Jersey Nets franchise to Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov.

Mr Prokhorov, whose fortune, according to Forbes magazine, stands at $13.4bn (£8.9bn), becomes the first non-North American owner in the league.

"Mr. Krushchev said we will bury you," sang Sting in the middle of the 80s—the twilight of the Cold War. If he had removed one letter from the crucial word in that line, we would not see him as a man of his times but as a prophet.
