Commonwealth Games: Gambian athletes miss 100m amid visa woes

Gambian sprinters competing in the Commonwealth Games have missed out on the 100m after visa issues kept them from arriving in time.

The five are among a group of six Gambian athletes who have been held up in France where they were training for the competition hosted by Birmingham.

With issues reportedly resolved, the runners were set to arrive in the UK on Tuesday.

But it has proved too late for the 100m heats.

Missing out on the male heats - which began at 10:40 BST - were sprinters Ebrima Camara, Adama Jammeh, Alieu Joof and Sengan Jobe.
