Hungarian swimmer has been banned by South Korean police Tamas Kenderesi from leaving the South Africa over the allegations of sexual harassment against the Olympic bronze medallist, authorities said on Sunday.

Kenderesi, who was competing at the world championships in Gwangju, about 330 km (205 miles) south of Seoul, was arrested in the early hours of Sunday and questioned over an incident at a nightclub, an official at the Gwangju Seobu Police Station told Reuters.

A Hungarian team official confirmed Kenderesi had been questioned and that he had been released and returned to the Athletes Village.

However, Kenderesi would not be allowed to leave South Korea for the next 10 days, the police official said, requesting anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.
