'Delhi belly' at Commonwealth Games

7th October 2010

Swimmers competing in the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi are being affected by a stomach virus that may have been caused by the water quality at the aquatics centre.

Some 15 swimmers on the England and Australian teams have been affected including English competitor Fran Halsall, who collapsed after receiving a medal, while Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington said she was unwell. Commonwealth Games Federation president Mike Fennell said officials will investigate the matter urgently and conduct tests on both the main pool and the warm-up pool.
