Following the game, the Slovenian Handball Federation claimed that they had 12 poisoned players in their team due to the hotel food.

“We are sure this is not coincidence,” the federation said in a statement.

Danish channel TV2 have also stated that Slovenia team manager have warned the Danish national team from eating the hotel food.

However, the director of the Danish Handball Federation laughed off these claims.

“Many teams suffer from stomach issues, and it’s not the Slovenians only. Some teams didn’t face Egypt and had suffered from issues as well.

“The hotel employees are competent and are trying their best to maintain the hygienic atmosphere, and I am sure they will continue doing this before our game against Egypt,” he added.
