Tennis Player Leander Paes Disappointed For Not Allocated Room In Rio


Indian tennis star Leander Paes has not been dispensed a room in the Rio Olympics diversions town. The seven-time Olympian, who touched base in Rio de Janeiro Thursday evening, said he was extremely disappointed with the treatment dished out to him. Since he was conceded no room, Paes supposedly needed to change in the Chef De Mission Rakesh Gupta's room. India's non-playing chief/mentor Zeeshan Ali bolstered Paes and affirmed that the tennis player never said that he would not live in the town.

"I am slightly disappointed that having played six Olympics for India, I haven't been given a place to stay. I was playing a tournament in New York and took the first flight on its completion. The match got over at 8 and took a 10.45 flight to Rio," Leander said. Of the three rooms that have been assigned in the apartment, one is with Zeeshan, and the other two have been given to Rohan and the team physio."
