Reports indicated that, while preparing to leave the United Kingdom, the athlete (name withheld) had already packed his things out. An official report was subsequently lodged with the United Kingdom Police.
Data shared by organisers of the the Commonwealth games flagged 17 athletes running away from camp. Out of the 17, 5 are reportedly citizens from Sri Lanka with Ghanaian recording only one.
The United Kingdom Police has signalled that they will do everything possible to search for those who have escaped and get them deported as soon as possible.
When the news surfaced online, many Ghanaians expressed their unhappiness about the Ghanaian athlete who has disgraced us to the rest of the world.
This is how Joynews reported the incident.
