Egypt Olympic team receive 'fake' Nike kit

  • Members of Egypt's Olympic team have been given fake Nike gear, according to claims made by a synchronised swimmer.

    Yomna Khallaf said her workout bags sported a Nike logo on the front but the zippers featured Adidas branding.

    The Egyptian Olympic Committee (EOC) has stated they were shocked to learn that the gear was not "directly from Nike".

    A Nike spokesman said the company had been made aware that the EOC chose a sports gear vendor who may have supplied counterfeit footwear and apparel bearing the Nike logos.

    The sports giant said it was in discussions with the EOC to see if a solution could be reached.
