London: The head of the Commonwealth Games Federation said Monday the organisation was "actively exploring alternative options" to Durban as host of the 2022 Games after "key obligations" had not been met by the South African city.

Last month, South Africa sports minister Fikile Mbalula indicated the government might withdraw its financial support because of the cost of staging the multi-sport event, saying "we cannot live beyond our means".

CGF president Louise Martin, following a meeting of the organisation's executive board in London, said in a statement Monday: "In line with the mandate from members at the 2016 General Assembly, the CGF is actively exploring alternative options, including a potential replacement host."
