China may face ITTF sanction


The Internatio­nal Table Tennis Federation threatened on Sunday to slap sanctions on China’s national team after three top players quit a tournament in apparent protest at their head coach’s removal.

The ITTF received a public apology from the Chinese team but it said it was taking the matter “extremely seriously” as it “damaged the image and the integrity of table tennis globally”. “Right now, all potential sanctions are on the table, and the ITTF will continue its investigat­ion before any decisions are made,” the ITTF statement said.
