Etoundi in trouble over assault

Australian weightlifter Francois Etoundi had his Commonwealth Games accreditation revoked on Thursday after an alleged assault at the athletes' village in Glasgow, organisers announced on Wednesday.

Etoundi, who won a bronze medal in the 77kg category, was detained by police after an early-morning disturbance on Wednesday and was due to appear before a court on Thursday.

"We do not want the gentleman returning to the village and as a consequence of that, we have worked with the Australian team and we fully support the question posed to us to withdraw his accreditation," Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive Mike Hooper told Thursday's daily media briefing.
