Jason Day backs out of Rio Olympic Games over fear of Zika virus



             


The world's No.1 golfer, Jason Day  has cited fears of Zika virus as his reason for not participating in the Rio Olympics to take place in Brazil this summer.

Read what he wrote:

"The reason for my decision is my concerns about the possible transmission of the Zika virus and the potential risks that it might present to my wife's future pregnancies and to future members of our family," Day said in a statement published on his Twitter account.
"I have always placed my family in front of everything else in my life. Medical experts have confirmed that while perhaps slight, a decision to compete in Rio absolutely comes with health risks to me and my family. My wife Ellie and I have been blessed with two wonderful and healthy children and our plans is to have more.
"While it has always been a major goal to compete in the Olympics on behalf of my country, playing golf cannot take precedent over the safety of our family. I will not place them at risk."
