The Kerry priest who assaulted a Brazilian runner during the Olympic men's marathon says he plans to visit the athlete at his home in Brazil.

Fr. Cornelius Horan says he will present Vanderlei de Lima with some Waterford cut glass to apologise for denying him a gold medal at the games.

Meanwhile the Olympic Council of Ireland has announced its intention to invite Mr. de Lima as an honorary guest to the Dublin City Marathon.
