Seven Russian swimmers and three rowers have been banned from competing at the Rio Olympic Games by their sports' governing bodies.

Swimming's Fina and rowing's Fisa took action after the International Olympic Committee let sports federations decide if athletes should miss the Games.

That was in response to a report on state-sponsored doping in Russia.

Anti-doping groups had called for a blanket ban on Russian athletes for next month's Rio Games.
