The International Olympic Committee is looking into the gesture Raven Saunders made after the shot put silver medallist raised her arms in an X above her head on Sunday. The American had said her gesture was intended as a sign of support for the downtrodden.

The IOC is in contact with World Athletics, the international governing body for the sport, and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee.
