Belarus sprinter says she has been taken to airport 'against her will'.

Belarus sprinter Krystsina Tsimanouskaya says she has been taken to the airport against her will after she criticised national Olympic coaches.

She was due to compete in the women's 200 metres and the 4x400 metres relay at the Tokyo Olympics next week.

The 24-year-old says she has sought the protection of officers so she does not have to board a flight home.
