McVeigh[b][/b]told BBC Sport NI that McComb had not yet been interviewed as he had not yet returned to the Team Village."It's something we have to apologise for to the good people of the Gold Coast who have invited us here and it is very disappointing when something like this happens," he said."I'm not aware of exactly where he is but he has made contact with some others in the team. He has apologised for what has happened but that hasn't been officially reported back to me yet."This is a serious blow to our reputation. We are held in high esteem throughout the Commonwealth over many, many Commonwealth Games and to have something like this take away from the success we have had so far and the success we are going to have is really, really disappointing."We will interview Sean McComb when he comes in and speak to the police in the area to see what action needs to be taken as a result of this."
