Russia has been handed a four-year ban from all major sporting events.

On Monday, the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) executive committee took the decision after it concluded that Moscow manipulated laboratory data by planting fake evidence.

According to reports, athletes who can prove they are untainted by the doping scandal can compete under a neutral flag.
