‘The French swimmer has sunk me,’ Italy’s Bruni told media after the event. ‘At the finish she obstructed me and I could not touch the board. I am glad of the decision of the judges.’
After removing Muller, the gold medal eventually went to Sharon Van Rouwendaal, silver to Italy’s Bruni and bronze to Brazil’s Poliana Okimoto.

‘This is the worst scenario that can happen,’ Philippe Lucas, Muller’s coach, told France’s RMC Sport.
‘I have not seen the images. I found that the decision was made very quickly anyway.
‘In sports, there is always injustice unfortunately. It’s like that.
‘But it’s not worth crying for 50 years. The podium is made, it’s dead. It’s over.’
