Strong winds damage exterior of Rio Games aquatics centre

Strong winds in Rio have forced Olympic organisers to postpone rowing events for a second day.

The decision to call off the rowing followed a day of difficult conditions on the opening programme on Saturday, with some rowers complaining that the races should have been postponed then. One boat capsized and several others were nearly swamped.

The high winds also damaged the aquatics centre and velodrome.
