The World Anti-Doping Agency says that Russia should be banned from this summer's Olympics and Paralympics.

This was after evidence was found of a four-year, state-sponsored doping programme.

A Wada-commissioned report found urine samples of Russian competitors were manipulated across the "vast majority" of summer and winter Olympic sports from late 2011 to August 2015.

The International Olympic Committee will decide today, whether to provisionally ban Russia from the Rio Olympics, which start on 5th August.
