Sweden's attorney general has decided against prosecuting a magazine for defamation after it quoted the wife of former Swedish tennis great Bjorn Borg as saying, "Swedes are stupid nobodies."

The remark attributed to Loredana Borg, a former Italian rock singer who married Borg in September, appeared on the advertising billboard of the celebrity and gossip weekly Svensk Damtidning.Attorney General Hans Stark received a complaint from an unidentified person who said that the headline violated the law forbidding "agitation against an ethnic group."
