The International Olympic Committee says that they are looking to investigate Egyptian judo fighter Islam El Shehaby to figure out what he refused to shake the hand of Israeli fighter Or Sasson after he defeated Shehaby in a 100kg judo match.

A rep for the IOC said,

“The IOC has set up a Disciplinary Commission to look into this matter.”

The ref called both men to the mat which is when El Shehaby refused and gave a head bow. Reports are claiming that El Shehaby was politically motivated under pressure from powerful Egyptians who did not want to see him be cordial with an Israeli.
