The World Taekwondo Federation will hold a review into the London 2012 selection process which has seen World No 1 Aaron Cook rejected three times.

Dorchester's champ has been replaced by Lutalo Muhammad, ranked 59 places below 21 year-old Cook, and GB Taekwondo will now be scrutinised by the world governing body to see if it has broken its code of ethics.

In a statement Cook's agent Jamie Cunningham said this is an embarrassment not only for the sport of Taekwondo internationally, but also for Great Britain’s international reputation in hosting the London 2012 Games.

He continued to say if the British World Number 1 and reigning European Champion does not compete, it will be a national disgrace which the world’s media will highlight.

Cook and his team are committed to over-turning this flawed recommendation.
