The President of the General Sports Authority, Turki al-Sheikh, who ordered the suspension of the center's license and the opening of an investigation, said the video contained scenes that could corrupt public morals, adding in a Twitter post that Saudi authorities "will not tolerate this".

Government officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the whereabouts of the Saudi king and crown prince during the incident.
