AUSTRALIAN team chiefs have defended the nation’s athletes over accusations the Commonwealth Games team have turned into “ugly Aussie’’ tourists.

    AUSTRALIA’S chef de mission Steve Moneghetti confirms controversial coach Eric Hollingsworth would be sent home immediately after his Sally Pearson tirade.

    FRANCOIS Etoundi has been stripped of his accreditation and evicted from the athletes’ village for an altercation with a Welsh athlete.

    ERIC Hollingsworth dramatically misread the situation. As a result the last image of him will be rushing out of Hampden Park with his tail between legs.

    YOU name it, it’s probably happened in an athletes’ village, including destroyed washing machines, dangerous rooms, police raids and even a sex den.
