Figure skating superstar Yuzuru Hanyu has donated a pair of gloves to the Olympic Museum in Switzerland following a request by the IOC, an informed source said recently.

The 23-year-old, a two-time Olympic champion, submitted a pair of Japan delegation gloves from the Pyeongchang Winter Games in February.

Hanyu joins fellow Olympic medalists Naoko Takahashi, Kohei Uchimura and Noriaki Kasai, who have donated equipment and memorabilia to the museum, located near the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.
