No members of the Taiwanese team were harmed and no property losses were sustained, the official added.

The team is renting 10 three-room apartments in the complex to save travel time to and from the stadium, the trade office said.

Elsewhere in the Games, India’s men routed Hong Kong 26-0 in field hockey, the eight-time Olympic champions’ biggest winning margin in an international event, while Japan broke their badminton drought to China in the women’s team final.

Olympic champions Misaki Matsutomo and Ayaka Takahashi sealed the 3-1 win with a 21-16, 21-11 victory over Huang Dongping and Zheng Yu.

Japan had not won the title since 1970, which China had held for two decades.
