Australia’s Olympians will be issued with free super-strength condoms in Rio to minimise any infection from the Zika virus, officials said Monday.

A Texas missionary who managed an orphanage in Malawi has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing eight children at the East African facility.

Gerald Campbell, 66, used his position as general manager of the home between 1997 and 2009 to lure his victims into his accommodation and assault them. All the victims were orphans living at the Victory Christian Children's Home. One boy was suffering from HIV.

Campbell admitted he knew what he was doing was wrong, but he thought nobody would believe the victims if they reported the abuse.

He also acknowledged to the authorities he sent money to some of the minors in an attempt to buy their silence.

Campbell was a member of Grace Fellowship Church in Odessa, which had ties with the children's home.

He pleaded guilty on Wednesday in a Texas magistrate's court to one count of engaging in illicit sexual conduct in a foreign place. A Justice Department spokesperson says the 66-year-old Odessa man could get up to 30 years in federal prison.

US Homeland Security agents began investigating him in June 2014 after receiving a tip-off. Sentencing hasn't been scheduled yet.
