Abstract

Extract
Introduction: The interplay between sport, international relations and diplomacy is a long, complex and fascinating one. Like music or art, sport is a universal language that can transcend acrimonious diplomatic relationships, offer high profile pathways for dialogue beyond the negotiating table and, idealistically, unite disparate nations and their publics through a mutual affection for physical exercise, competition and games. As Nelson Mandela (2000) noted: sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can awaken hope where there was previously only despair. Sport speaks to people in a language they can understand.
