LONDON (AFP) - A Commonwealth Games weightlifter from Papua New Guinea went on trial in the host city of Glasgow on Monday accused of sexually assaulting another man in a supermarket toilet.

Toua Udia, 22, denies intentionally or recklessly touching the man’s testicles on July 21 in a Tesco coffee shop lavatory near the athletes’ village.

The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games concluded on Sunday.

Udia’s accuser, who cannot be identified, told a Glasgow court that the weightlifter touched his testicles while he helped him strap an ice pack to his leg.
