North Korea match delayed after South Korea flag displayed

2:32 pm on 26 July 2012

North Korea's Olympic women's football team walked off the pitch before this mornings match against Colombia after the South Korea flag was incorrectly displayed on a giant screen at Glasgow's Hampden Park stadium.

The game was delayed for over an hour after images of the North Korea players were displayed beside the South Korea flag and London Olympics organisers had to issue an apology for the mistake.
