England hotel fined for not providing condoms

The hotel where the England team will be based in Rio has been fined for not providing condoms to guests, says Brazil's health inspector group Procon.

The news comes after out-of-date food was found at both the England and Italian teams hotels in Rio de Janeiro.

The consumer health group said:

In Sao Conrado, at the Hotel Royal Tulip, where the England team will be based, 2.362kg of unusable butter, Parma ham and salmon was seized.

The hotel was also fined for not providing condoms to guests.

The agency also said neither hotel provided condoms for sale at cost, nor information about sexually transmitted diseases, as required by law.

Both hotels have 15 days to make official explanations to the government agency before any fines can be levied.
