South Korea: Journalist dies in Olympic media village, POCOG confirms

The spokesperson for the organising committee of the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Games has confirmed reports that a journalist died in the early hours of Saturday at the Olympic media village. According to the POCOG spokesperson Sung Baik You, the deceased, 50, was a Korean national working for the Japanese Broadcasting Coalition. The man was rushed to Gangneung Dong-in hospital after his roommate... Еще found him unresponsive, but was declared dead on the way. No more details on the cause of death were available, as the case is still under police investigation. The spokesperson also commentated on the Swiss athletes reportedly hit by a norovirus outbreak, explaining that there were no further causes for concern for an outbreak among athletes because these two athletes were not staying at the Olympic village, but at the Phoenix Snow Park in preparation for their competition. So far a total of 261 cases of the virus have been confirmed. During the daily press briefing at the Main Press centre of the Winter Olympics, IOC spokesperson Mark Adams also referred to the Adam Pengilly expulsion, adding the information that POCOG had exerted “quite a lot of pressure” for the IOC member to remain on Korean soil, before the decision was made to allow him to leave the country.
