Paralympic champion Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson has commented on BBC Radio Five Live:

"Unfortunately there is no test they could do before the event as to who from the accredited personnel is going to go and watch the events.

"It's now up to the organisers to make sure that the tickets are used."
