Sierra Leone athletes seek UK visa extension over Ebola

Around 30 Commonwealth Games athletes from Sierra Leone are considering extending their stay in Glasgow amid fears over the Ebola virus.

A  second Sierra Leone competitor, Samuel Morris, has been tested for Ebola and cleared by doctors in Glasgow.

Cyclist Moses Sesay had also tested negative for the virus. Sesay, 32, was admitted to a Glasgow hospital last week after feeling unwell and doctors tested him for various conditions, including Ebola.

Another Sierra Leone cyclist, Mohamed Tholley, has vanished from the athletes’ village.

More than 700 people have died since February in an outbreak affecting four west African countries – Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria.
