Play time

It seems Cuban athletes are failing to win the hearts and minds of many spectators at the Pan-American Games being held in Rio.

According to media reports, angry Brazilian spectators have been booing the Cubans, throwing plastic cups and other objects at the athletes and referees and complaining about some of the results.

It could have something to do with the fact that the Cubans are winning more gold medals than the host nation.

Or it may be related to the way the victorious Cuban athletes invariably (and totally voluntarily, of course) dedicate their victories to Fidel Castro.
