Closest of rivals half a world away

Stewart Fisher (The closest of rivals, Sport, December 9) states that when Dundee Utd and Dundee compete in the Dundee Derby, it is the shortest away day in world football.

He should know that Racing Club and Independiente, who play in the Argentine First Division and are both former World Club Champions, are even closer, at approximately 200 metres. A look at Google Earth will confirm.
