Mass desertion has hit the Cameroon team representing the Central African country at the ongoing 2018 Commonwealth Games, in Gold Coast, Australia.

Nso said the rest of Team Cameroon - 34 in total, including basketballers and two other weightlifters - and their officials have already left Australia.

Three weightlifters and two boxers have not been seen since Tuesday, while another three have since gone missing, including boxer Christelle Ndiang, who disappeared after losing her bout to Australian Skye Nicholson on Tuesday.

Gold Coast: Varun Kumar and Mandeep Singh struck in dying minutes of the game as the Indian men's hockey team pulled off a thrilling 4-3 win over England to top Pool B in the Commonwealth Games here on Wednesday.

India only required a draw to progress to the Semi-final as they had accumulated a tally of six points from three matches before they faced South Africa, who needed to win the match as they could only accumulate four points from their first three games.

Team Cameroon officials have notified Australia police of the situation, as well as state officials in their home country.

The Australian government has warned athletes against overstaying their visas.

England play Australia on Friday and co-captain George Pinner said: "We are very excited about playing Australia in front of a packed house. And if they are thinking of doing anything other, I would encourage them not to".

"They are keeping a watching brief on these athletes", she said.

This is not the first time Cameroon athletes have been reported missing from an global event.

AUSTRALIAN boxer Clay Waterman has won through to the Commonwealth Games semi-finals - and prompted an epic meltdown from his opponent.

Mr Lyonga called on the athletes to re-join the team, saying that they would not face consequences in Cameroon.

Organising committee manager Peter Beattie urged the athletes to return and implored them not to disregard laws that are in place.

The Cameroonian athletes are nowhere according to reports meanwhile; they have valid visas until May 15, allowing them to spend another month legally in Australia.

"However, Commonwealth Games visitors who do not meet their visa requirements can expect to have their visas cancelled".

During the London 2012 Olympics, 21 athletes and delegates either vanished or asked for asylum in the UK.
