A "joke" on "etymology"

Italy down White Russians to steady nerves — This is not even funny anymore. This is the top news item on eurosport.com right now. DO THEY KNOW HOW "BELARUS" IS CALLED IN ENGLISH AND THAT IT DOES NOT MEAN "WHITE RUSSIA"? Can someone please give me phone numbers? Any White Germans out there who have the White German eurosport office contact information?

Upd: I got an email from Francois Picard @eurosport.com. They corrected the mistake. Now the headline goes "Italy down Belarus to steady nerves".
