Donald Trump has told the Republican National Convention he’s proud to be their nominee for president. In a video message, after being formally confirmed as candidate, Mr Trump said he would win the vote in November and bring real change to Washington.
The International Olympic Committee has said it will explore all legal options before it decides whether to implement a collective ban on all Russian athletes from competing at the Rio games: they start in just three weeks. The IOC has received a damning report into widespread state-sponsored doping in Russian sport, particularly at the Winter Games in Sochi.
