Japan sends home basketball players after night with women

The quartet, wearing their team uniforms, checked into a hotel with four women

Japan have sent home four players from their men's basketball team at the 18th Asian Games for spending the night in a Jakarta hotel with women, head of the delegation Yasuhiro Yamashita said on Monday.

The players left the athletes' village following their game against Qatar on Thursday to eat at a restaurant where they met a Japanese-speaking local, who told them about a bar where they could meet women, Yamashita told a news conference.

The quartet, who were wearing their team uniforms, spent a couple of hours at the bar before checking into a hotel with four women, staying there until Friday morning, he added.

Japan, who won basketball bronze at the last Asian Games four years ago, beat Qatar 82-71 in their second game in Jakarta and top qualifying Group C. Their next match is against Hong Kong on Wednesday.
