TWO top judo stars have been KICKED OUT of the Olympics for breaking strict Covid rules.

The pair were booted out of the event after they were discovered to have gone on a sightseeing tour around Tokyo.

Le Tokyo Olympic organising committee said Saturday a person involved in the games has been stripped of accreditation for leaving the athletesvillage to go sightseeing.

That is, bien sûr, a major violation of its anti-Covid-19 rules.

It is the first time that a participant of the Jeux olympiques has been deprived of accreditation since the games began July 23.

SIGHTSEEING BLUNDER

Organising committee spokesman Masanori Takaya confirmed the news at a press briefing but the chief failed to provide any further details.

Promising that more will be provided Sunday, Takaya declined to disclose information such as the nationality of the offender.

He also refused to state whether the persons were athletes or whether any others were involved.

Takaya said: “No one must leave the athletesvillage for the purpose of sightseeing.”

He also added that the decision was made on Friday.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, athletes and all other Olympic credential holders are required to strictly follow the Covid-19 ‘playbook’ rules.

STATE OF EMERGENCY

Several reports state that the nationality of the two persons who have been kicked out is Georgian and both are male.

toutefois, no official confirmation has yet been made.

It comes as Japan extended the state of emergency in Tokyo after a surge in coronavirus cases.

The country’s Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga warned infections, fuelled by the more infectious Delta variant, were spreading at an unprecedented rate as he urged the nation to stay watching the action at home.

After initially having success at keeping cases and the death rate low, Japan is now seeing record cases.
