Matt Richards tells IOC to "take care of their athletes" after ticketing scam

Olympic freestyle gold medallist Matt Richards has urged the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to take better care of athletes competing at the Games and their families after his parents fell victim to an online ticketing scam. Richards' mother Amanda has told the BBC that the family had been scammed out of £2,500 pounds (€2,955 euros) by a ticket website that "looked perfectly legitimate”. The swimmer has called out the IOC and its President for not providing competitor’s families with better access to tickets.
