Sudan denies asylum report

By Tony Ubani

The Sudanese Embassy in London on Friday denied that one of its Olympic runners had applied for asylum in the U.K.

“We herewith categorically refute allegations … that a Sudanese member of those who qualified for the Olympic competition and have arrived in London is either missing (or) sought political asylum,” the Sudanese Embassy said in a statement. The Embassy was closed and not accepting phone calls at the time of the release.

The male Olympian reportedly showed up Tuesday night at the Bridewell Police Station near the northern English city of Leeds. A number of countries have training camps in the area, including the Chinese.
