A ban on India's Olympic Association has been lifted, allowing the country to return to the Olympic fold.

The International Olympic Committee suspended India for electing officials accused of corruption in 2012, in breach of the Olympic charter.

But on Sunday the IOA conducted fresh elections which were seen as fair.

Indian athletes have been competing at the Sochi Winter Games under the IOC flag but can now do so under their own.
