The Daily Mail reports:
The English Chess Federation is now probing the astonishing claims of physical, verbal and racist abuse at the European Union Youth Championships in Mureck, Austria last week.
It is claimed that two parents of other English children in the tournament were harassing and abusing Miss Contu in the stands.
One of those involved is said to have forcefully grabbed Yousuf by the chest, causing him to bleed.
The family, from Marshland St James, Norfolk, had travelled to central Europe so the three boys could represent their country in the chess competition during their school holidays.
Alan A adds:
The Telegraph followed up on the story. There has been an investigation, which found the complaint to be “unfounded“. The article concludes with the information that the father “intends to pursue his complaints further”.
