Two Australian rowing coaches were robbed at knifepoint by two teenage boys in Rio in the latest security failure at the Games.

The coaches were wearing their team uniforms and were walking a short distance back to their hotel near Ipanema Beach after the opening ceremony on Friday, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

The coaches were reportedly violently assaulted during the incident after being approached by two teenage boys, including one who pulled out a knife and demanded money.
