RIO DE JANEIRO, August 10. /TASS/. The color of water in the Olympics diving pool has changed its color from blue to green because of water purification system problems, organizers have told TASS.

The water in the pool has changed color because of problems with filters that are not functioning efficiently enough, the sources said, adding that it was still unclear when the problem would be fixed.

The Rio Olympic Games end on August 21.
