A player with India's lawn bowls squad is down with dengue fever, the first person affiliated with the Commonwealth Games to be afflicted with the mosquito-borne disease. GB Pant hospital officials confirmed the case hours before Sunday's Commonwealth Games opening ceremony that Ruptu Gogoi had the virus, but his condition was stable.

"He is eating well. He is sleeping well. He is talking well," said a doctor at the GB Pant hospital. CWG Chief Medical Officer Bhartinder Singh also confirmed that Gogoi is down with dengue fever.

"He has some fever which is quite natural as he had the problem for four to five days," said Dr VK Monga, chairman, Municipal Corporation. He also said that Gogoi had a slight fever on Sep 24, a day after he moved into the Village.
