Table tennis player David Wetherill has been deselected by ParalympicsGB for the Tokyo Games following a breach of team rules.

The 31-year-old was set to appear at his fourth successive Paralympics having made his debut at Beijing 2008.

He had been due to compete in the Class 6 singles and Class 6-7 team event alongside Will Bayley and Paul Karabardak, who will continue in that competition as a pair.

“Following a legal proceeding David Wetherill has been deselected from the ParalympicsGB team for Tokyo 2020 for breaching the British Para Table Tennis code of conduct,” read a statement from ParalympicsGB.

“In accordance with the terms of the arbitration process no further information will be provided.”

The GB table tennis team in Japan now consists of 11 players.
