Israeli star auctions Rio ID badge

An Israeli Olympic bronze medallist has put her Rio Games identification badge up for sale on eBay to raise money for a children's cancer hospital, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The autographed identification badge being auctioned online by Yarden Gerbi had fetched €13 000 by Tuesday afternoon, said the Times of Israel.

It said bidding would continue until Monday night.

The proceeds will be donated to the children's oncology department of Ichilov Hospital at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, the newspaper said.

Gerbi -- Israel's 2013 judo world champion -- was feted at home after she clinched the Olympic under-63kg bronze medal in Rio.

Fellow Israeli judoka Or Sasson also won a bronze medal in the over 100 kilogram category.
