Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced a cash reward for all participants in the Tokyo Olympics.
The four gold medallists will each receive one million Kenyan shillings ($9,100; £6,500) while silver medallists will be given $6,800.
The two bronze medallists will receive $4,500 while everyone who took part in the games and the technical team members will each receive $1,800.
Kenya bagged 10 medals, more than any other country in Africa.
The government had been accused of giving its team a low-key reception, especially compared to how Uganda welcomed its athletes when they returned home.
Kenya’s government spokesperson blamed the reception on Covid-19 regulations.
Uganda gifted its four medallists cars and houses.
