LONDON: British Prime Minister's spokesman, after the report about fake Pakistani passports and visas in the newspaper "The Sun", said that we are confident that "we have the checks in place and the arrangements in place to deal with these issues".

Spokesman added that "delegation lists for the Olympic Games are very tightly controlled" and when it comes to Pakistan “we have had highly-trained staff based in Pakistan dealing with the authorities there to deal with this."
Pakistan's Sports officials already rejected the report and raised the points that among 39 players, every player is well known and it is not possible that terrorists enter into United Kingdom with Pakistan's olympics Squad.
