• Some of Britain's top athletes threaten legal action over sponsorship regulations

Top British athletes are threatening to sue the British Olympic Association over sponsorship regulations.

Mo Farah, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Laura Muir and Adam Gemili are among those listed as claimants in a legal letter sent to the body.

Athletes competing in the Olympics are currently bound by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) 'Rule 40'.

It protects the exclusive rights of official Games partners but prevents athletes promoting their own sponsors.
