- Videos posted after return from Olympic event in London
Several members of Russia’s national boxing team have posted online pictures or videos that appear to show them flouting self-isolation rules imposed to slow the spread of coronavirus, social media posts reviewed by Reuters show.
The Russian national boxing team returned home last week after an Olympic qualification tournament in London was halted on 16 March because of the rapidly spreading virus. Two Turkish boxers and one coach tested positive for coronavirus after returning home from the event and there were reports that three members of the Croatian delegation had also tested positive.
