McIlroy could miss Olympics over Zika virus

Rory McIlroy says he could turn down the chance to play at the Olympics because of the Zika virus in Brazil.

The virus, which is linked to brain deformities in newborn babies, concerns the four-times major winner from Northern Ireland as he plans to start a family with fiancee Erica Stoll.

McIlroy remains committed to playing in Rio but will "monitor the situation" concerning the virus.
