German Chancellor Angela Merkel has denied a request for a meeting with Jan Ullrich. German government spokesman Thomas Steg told the Sport-Bild magazine that a member of the Chancellor's office made clear that a meeting with Ullrich would not be considered.

The magazine reports that Ullrich's friend and business partner Michael Stehle sent an e-mail requesting a meeting to discuss "the rehabilitation of his reputation through an appropriate recognition of his contributions and performances."
