Members of Egypt’s Olympic team have been given fake Nike gear, a synchronised swimmer has alleged.

Yomna Khallaf said her workout bags had a big Nike logo in the front but the zippers had an Adidas branding on them.

The Egyptian Olympic Committee (EOC) secretary general, Motaz Sonbol, said they were shocked to find that the gear was not “directly from Nike”.

Nike said it was “concerned” athletes may have received products that do not meet the company’s quality standards.
