Jong-woo to receive medal

South Korean footballer Park Jong-woo is finally set to receive his Olympic Bronze medal, two months after London 2012 finished.

Jong-woo was banned from the medal ceremony at Wembley after waving a banner which read "Dokdo is our territory", and sparking a diplomatic row with Japan. The sign referred to a dispute between the two countries and happened as the midfielder celebrated a 2-0 win against their rivals.

His actions led to FIFA opening disciplinary proceedings against him, which are still unresolved. But the Korea Football Association has now confirmed Jong-woo has received notification from the International Olympic Committee that it has finally signed off his medal.

"The Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) handed over the certificates to the KFA on Tuesday," the KFA told Yonhap news agency. "Park Jong-woo's certificate was included."

Jong-woo was labelled as "courageous" by South Korean military officials for his actions, although the KFA condemned him as "impulsive". Dokdo, also known as Takeshima, lies equidistant between Japan and South Korea but is controlled by the latter. The islands are believed to contain frozen natural gas deposits potentially worth billions of dollars.
