4:34 pm on 22 October 2010

Officials from Samoa's Commonwealth Games team say they're hurt by allegations they stayed at an expensive hotel in Delhi and were too busy living it up to send basic reports home.

Team Samoa's Assistant Chief de Mission, Seb Kolhause, says they stayed in a hotel for only one night when they arrived to find their accommodations at the Games Village was unhygienic.

He says they returned to the village the next day and stayed there with the athletes for the remainder of the games.
