IOC wants action over doping claims

The International Olympic Committee has asked the IAAF to start disciplinary proceedings against athletes accused of doping in the World Anti-Doping Agency independent commission report.

Wada said Russia should be banned from athletics competition for running a "state-supported" doping programme.

It added that five Russian athletes and five coaches should be given lifetime doping bans.

They included London 2012 gold medallist Mariya Savinova.
