Olympic venues will be inspected daily in the lead-up to and during this summer's Games in Rio in an attempt to minimise the impact of the Zika virus.

An outbreak of the mosquito-borne disease - which is being linked to severe birth defects - has caused growing concern in Brazil and abroad.

The International Olympic Committee is in "close contact" with Rio organisers.

The British Olympic Association and British Paralympic Association are monitoring developments.
