WADA hand Russia four-year ban from all major sporting events including 2020 Olympics and 2022 World Cup
Russia have been banned from all major sporting events for four years by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
The suspension means the country will not be present at either the Tokyo 2020 Olympics or the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Some Russian athletes may be able to take part at the Games next year as an independent competitor if they can prove they were not embroiled in the doping scandal.
The nation has 21 days to appeal the ban.
It comes after the Russian Anti-Doping Agency was declared non-compliant for manipulating laboratory data handed over to investigators in January 2019.
Despite the ban, Russia will still be allowed to compete at the UEFA European Championships next summer because the tournament is not defined as a 'major event organisation'.

WADA president Linda Helleland said the punishment was 'not enough' but was pleased that it had been dealt with.
"I wanted sanctions that can not be watered down," she said.
"We owe it to the clean athletes to implement the sanctions as strongly as possible."
