Some officials of the Nigeria football team to the Rio Olympics have received their share of the $390,000 donated by a Japanese surgeon to the bronze-winning squad at the games.

It was gathered that each of the officials received $14,000.

It was further learnt that the cash backup for the cheques has finally been received more than two months after the donation was made and already a number of officials have received their payments, according to Africanfootball.com.

Wealthy Japanese surgeon, Katsuya Takasu, was highly impressed with the performance of the Samson Siasia-led team to Rio 2016 despite the many hurdles they faced and wrote out two cheques, one in favour of Coach Samson Siasia and the other for Chelsea star Mikel Obi.

The team agreed that the players be paid by Mikel, while Siasia settles the officials.

The documentation for the cheque in Mikel’s name is expected to be completed this week for the players to also smile to the bank shortly.

Both players and officials had earlier expressed fears after the long delay it took to cash the cheques.

Nigeria finished third at the Rio Olympics to complete a football Olympics medals set – Gold in 1996, silver in 2008 and bronze in 2016.
