Van Commenee won't apologise to Idowu

Head Coach of UK athletics Charles van Commenee reveals he had had no contact with Philips Idowu for a week, after the triple jumper missed a team training camp in Portugal due to injury.

Idowu stated he was "incredibly disappointed" after the British Olympic Association made public a request to see his medical records last week, but van Commenee states the request for his records is simply "a process of fact finding" due to the lack of communication.

The pair fell out after Idowu was accused of using Twitter to announce he was pulling out of the European Team Championships in June 2011.
