The London hotel at the centre of a stomach bug affecting athletes at the World Championships says it’s not the source of the illness.

Waterford’s Thomas Barr was among those who had to withdraw from their races due to an outbreak of gastroenteritis.

However The Tower Hotel says it’s followed “strict hygiene protocol” – and that those affected aren’t in contact with other guests.
