Following the BBC’s refusal to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the Israeli Olympic team prepared a video this which in which the athletes say they are proud to represent Israel “and its capital Jerusalem.”

The BBC had listed “East Jerusalem” as the capital for the “Palestinian Olympic team,” but listed Israel without a capital. In light of subsequent complaints, the British television network conceded that Israel’s “seat of government is Jerusalem” and added that “most foreign embassies reside in Tel Aviv.”
