Snowboarder Žan Košir, who was chosen as one of Slovenia's flag bearers at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games, has tested positive for Covid-19.
He tested positive upon arriving in Beijing.
Košir is now in isolation but is feeling well and has no symptoms.
He will be allowed to enter the Olympic village as soon as he presents two negative PCR tests.
Košir is one of Slovenia's medal hopefuls. He already has two medals from the last two Winter Olympics.
The opening ceremony for the Beijing Winter Olympics is scheduled for next Friday. Košir is supposed to be one of the flag bearers, alongside skier Ilka Štuhec.
