South Korea’s national swimming team manager has resigned as an investigation takes place into the alleged installation of hidden cameras to take pictures of female athletes.

Ahn Jong-Taek said that, as manager, he felt responsible for the “shameful” incident.

Police plan to question a member of South Korea’s Rio Olympics team, according to Yonhap news agency.
