Matsuyama withdraws from Olympics over Zika worries
Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama has become the latest top-20 ranked golfer to withdraw from the Olympics because of concerns about the Zika virus.
The 24-year-old, ranked 17th in the world, said he often had strong reactions to insect bites.
“I cannot be 100% sure about my safety from the Zika virus,” he said.
World number one Jason Day and Rory McIlroy also pulled out of Rio with concerns about Zika as golf returns to the Olympics after 112 years.
