Egyptian Judoka, Islam El Shehaby sent home from Olympics for snubbing handshake with an Israeli

Egyptian judoka, Islam El Shehaby has been sent home from the Olympics after he refused to shake the hand of Israeli opponent Or Sasson after their bout.


The 34-year-old was "strongly reprimanded" by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) after his first-round loss on Friday.

The IOC say his conduct was "against the spirit of friendship embodied in the Olympic values". The Egyptian Olympic Committee condemned El Shehaby and sent him home.
