A JAPANESE MEDALLIST SPENT 4.372 EUROS IN ROAMING FOR PLAYING POKEMON GO IN RIO

Laureate Japanese gymnast Kohei Uchimura received a telephone bill of half a million yen ( 4,372 Euros, 4,885 dollars) for playing Pokemon Go during his stay in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic Summer Games, Japanese media reported today.

 


The world champion and five-time Olympic medalist, one of the country’s greatest hopes to win a gold medal in Brazil, confessed that he received a hefty telephone bill for using data roaming after being ‘hooked’ to the popular smartphone game, according to Japanese news agency Kyodo.

Uchimura, 27, travelled to Brazil in mid July with the rest of the Japanese gymnastics team and could have played the game since it was launched at the end of the same month.

He recalled that “he could not believe” when he saw the amount on the bill and said that he finally chose a flat daily rate of 3,000 yen ($29) for data roaming in order to continue playing Pokemon Go in Brazil.

Uchimura became the first gymnast to win six consecutive world all-around titles after his victory at last year’s world championships in Glasgow, Britain.

He is also a five-time Olympic medal winner, one gold medal in the individual category at the Olympics Games in London 2012 and four silver medals, two in London and another two in Beijing 2008.
