Chilean journalist said he did not call tennis player Medvedev a fraud

Chilean journalist Sebastian Namias said that he did not call Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev a fraud due to the fact that the colors of the Russian tricolor were applied to the uniforms of Russian Olympic athletes.

Earlier on Wednesday, July 28, Medvedev asked the International Tennis Federation (ITF) to remove Namias from covering the Tokyo Games. The journalist, asking the tennis player about the uniform of the national team, called the Russian athletes “cheaters” (from the English cheater – a swindler, a swindler).

However, the ITF stated that it has no right to revoke the accreditation of a media representative, as he can ask any question.

Sebastian Namias himself believes that his question was harmless. “It was a simple question if they were branded after the doping scandal. I didn’t say that someone was cheating, ”he told his version of events in an interview with TASS.

The journalist called Medvedev “a good and well-mannered guy” and expressed the opinion that the tennis player now has more important things to do, ahead of him is the quarterfinals of the Olympic tournament.
