An athlete from Australia participating in the World University Games in Belgrade has been confirmed as having swine flu, according to the Serbian Institute for Public Health's official website.

The Australian athlete showed symptoms of the flu as soon as he arrived in Serbia. This is the 14th case of the A/H1N1 virus registered in Serbia. Those who have been in contact with the patient are under constant medical supervision, according to the website.

Three other likely cases of the flu have also been registered in the country. These are said to be persons with symptoms of the flu who were in close contact with individuals that have fallen ill. These cases, however have yet to be confirmed through a laboratory diagnosis.

Of the 14 confirmed cases in Serbia, 12 involved people who recently came to Serbia from a foreign country where the flu was already confirmed - Argentina, Australia, Canada, Britain and the United States. The other two patients are people who were in contact with the Montenegrin case confirmed in that country.
