Five Olympic athletes from Cameroon say they are seeking to remain in Britain after leaving the Olympic village last week.

The five men - all boxers - told the BBC that they had left after being threatened by senior members of the Cameroon Olympic delegation, who said their careers would be over if they lost their bouts.

One of the boxers, Blaise Yepmou Mendouo, explained what had happened, to the BBC's Tim Franks.
