Fana – The government of Ethiopia said Feyisa Lelisa, who earned a silver medal in men’s marathon for his country at the Rio Olympics, won’t face any problem while returning home.

Feyisa won’t face any problem due to his political stance, Getachew Reda, Government Communication Affairs Office (GCAO) Minister told FBC today.

“Though it is impossible to express a political stance at Olympic Games, the athlete will be welcomed while returning home along with other members of the Ethiopian Olympic squad,” he said.

With one gold, two silver, and five bronze medals, Ethiopia finished 44th in the medal table and 3rd from Africa.
