There were fears the deadly Ebola virus could have spread to Britain's shores after a Sierra Leone cyclist competing at the Commonwealth Games had to be tested for the killer disease.
Moses Sesay, 32, was admitted to a Glasgow hospital last week after feeling unwell and kept in isolation for four days, the Daily Mirror reports.
But Sessay, whose homeland has declared a public health emergency after 729 across West Africa died from the disease, was later given the all-clear in time to compete in the men's individual time trial yesterday.
A spokesman for Glasgow 2014 said: "There is no Ebola in the Athletes Village of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
"We can confirm an athlete was tested for a number of things when he fell ill last week, including Ebola. The tests were negative and the athlete competed in his event on Thursday."
A spokeswoman for Health Protection Scotland added it was an isolated incident and no other athletes were tested.
Pop princess Kylie stole the show as she closed what has been dubbed the 'best ever' Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
The Jamaican sprinter said the only negative at the Commonwealth Games was the weather, as he hailed the "brilliant" event in Glasgow.
Pop princess Kylie will be top of the bill tonight as the Commonwealth Games comes to a close.
