British government rejects no-handshake advice for its Olympians


The British government has rejected advice from the British Olympic Association’s chief medical officer that athletes should now shake hands at the London Games to avoid germs that could make them sick. Government health advisers seemed perplexed by the guidelines, which Olympic hopefuls derided as “rude” and “pointless”. Team GB is also distancing itself from the doctor’s advice, see for instance MercuryNews.
