Kuwait contingent during the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has lifted its ban on Kuwait provisionally, allowing the Gulf country’s athletes to march under their own flag at Saturday’s Asian Games opening ceremony in Jakarta.

However, Kuwait was warned by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) to steer clear of government interference in sport or face their third exile.

World bodies, led by the IOC and FIFA, had suspended Kuwait in 2015 for a second time since 2010 for political interference in sport.

The Kuwaiti team was delighted at the IOC decision. Watch the video below.
