9 August 2012 Last updated at 16:01 BST

Africa Village, the hospitality centre for African nations competing in the Olympic games, has had to close because of unpaid debts.

This is the first time the 53 African nations competing have come together to host one specially dedicated space.

It is not known whether the village will reopen before the end of the Olympics.
