• Putin says Russia complying with all World Anti-Doping Agency demands

MOSCOW: President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday (Oct 10) that Moscow was complying with all of the World Anti-Doping Agency's demands, as Russia faces another possible ban in the build-up to the Tokyo Olympics.

Russia stands to be declared non-compliant by WADA if it fails to explain why evidence of some positive tests handed over by a whistleblower does not show up in data provided by Moscow's anti-doping laboratory in January.

"We are actively cooperating with WADA. The requirements presented by this organisation are being fully complied with," Putin told a sports conference in the city of Nizhny Novgorod.
