Jakarta: Four Japanese basketball players have been sent home from the Asian Games in disgrace for allegedly paying prostitutes for sex. The incident took place after Japan's 82-71 win over Qatar in a group-stage game last Thursday. Japanese Olympic officials said they learned of the incident after a newspaper published photographs of the players out on the town. The JOC identified the four as Takuya Hashimoto, Keita Imamura, Yuya Nagayoshi, and Takuma Sato, and said the players had to pay for their own flights home from Jakarta. The JOC described the players' behavior as a "clear breach of the team's conduct code, which specifies athletes are to be role models."
