The Greek squad, which is staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Northern Durban, issued a statement through its spokesperson Michael Tsapidis saying the team was “extremely satisfied” with the hotel and that is was an incident that could have happened anywhere in the world.

However, on Friday morning, an official with the Uruguay squad, Ernesto Rodriguez, had money taken from a safe in his room.

Another official told reporters the amount was more than US $4000.
