The hospitality centre for African nations competing in the Olympics has had to close because of unpaid debts, a spokesman has confirmed.

Africa Village, set up in Kensington Gardens, west London, owes suppliers hundreds of thousands of pounds, Laurent Bagnis said.

He said an exact figure was not yet known.

A meeting is to be held to establish whether the venue can open later for its Tunisia Day.BBC
