Jacques Rogge, the Olympic Committee president, has added his concerns to the debate over athletes switching nationalities. Rogge says some athletes have a "legitimate" case to change nationalities but he says there are some athletes "who go to a country because there is a bigger gain to be made".

Rogge said: "Legally, we can not stop them, but let me tell you very frankly that I don't love that."
