Hungarian in assault probe

South Korean police have banned Hungarian swimmer Tamas Kenderesi from leaving the country as they investigate allegations of sexual harassment against the Olympic bronze medalist, authorities said yesterday. Kenderesi, who was competing at the world championships in Gwangju, was arrested in the early hours of yesterday and questioned over an incident at a nightclub, an official at the Gwangju Seobu Police Station said. A Hungarian team official confirmed Kenderesi had been questioned and that he had been released and returned to the Athletes Village. However, Kenderesi would not be allowed to leave South Korea for the next 10 days, the police official said. Yonhap News Agency reported earlier that the 22-year-old had denied the claims.
