The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Saturday it had received a"clarification" from the Chinese Olympic Committee over the political gesture of its athletes. "We have received a clarification and the athletes have been warned," Christian Klaue, IOC Director of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs, told reporters.

While the IOC last month relaxed Rule 50 to allow gestures, such as taking the knee on the field of play provided athletes do so without disruption and with respect for fellow competitors, it has made clear that such gestures were not allowed on the podium. We have to protect their rights and therefore the income which we can redistribute to athletes and sports. Beijing will host the 2022 winter Olympics in February."
