Team GB’s Luke Greenbank’s Olympic bronze medal win in the men’s 200m backstroke was overshadowed as runner-up Ryan Murphy made cryptic remarks about the race not being clean after Evgeny Rylov’s victory in the event.
Murphy made no outright accusation about the Russian Olympic Committee’s Rylov, who backed up his win in the men’s 100m breaststroke earlier this week with an Olympic record time in this 200m final of one minute and 53.27 seconds.
The Russian Olympic Committee issued a response on its Twitter account, rubbishing any claims of doping at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, describing criticism as “English language propaganda”.
