Man arrested after bottle thrown on Olympic 100-meter track

  • A man has been apprehended after a bottle was thrown on to the track just seconds before the start of the men's 100-meter final at the Olympic Stadium.

    A Metropolitan Police spokesman said a man had been heard shouting abuse and was then seen throwing a bottle, which landed behind the sprinters.

    Nobody was injured and the event was not disrupted.

    The suspect is currently in custody at an east London police station on suspicion of causing a public nuisance.
