Kenya news outlets are reporting that Kenyan police have charged the world’s 3,000m steeplechase champion, Ezekiel Kemboi, with assault after a woman said he stabbed her on Wednesday night.
The woman alleges that the athlete attacked her when she declined his sexual advances.
Mr Kemboi denied the allegations, saying she colluded with thugs to rob him and was injured in the skirmish. The magistrate granted the athlete bail and said he would be allowed to travel to London to compete in the Olympics.
At least we can now look forward to Kemboi doing his victory dance in London.
