Dozens of elite athletes have fallen ill midway through the World Championships in London, with some even ending up in hospital.
Support staff have also been affected, with what is believed to be a case of gastro. Botsawna’s medal favourite Isaac Makwala withdrew from competing in the 200m heats after vomiting minutes before the race started.
Many athletes and officials are now confined to their accommodation. The Australian team is staying at a different hotel and fortunately no one is sick, however, team officials are closely watching athlete health
