Seven Cameroon athletes who have disappeared whilst in Britain may be intending to claim asylum, according to an official from the country.

Mission head, David Ojong, said that the seven sportsmen, including five boxers, are suspected of having left to stay in Europe for economic reasons.

'What began as rumour has finally turned out to be true. Seven Cameroonian athletes who participated at the 2012 London Olympic Games have disappeared from the Olympic Village,' Mr Ojong, said in a message sent to Cameroon's Ministry of Sports and Physical Education.
