Wrestling faces participation drop

Former British wrestler Non Evans says she expects fewer people to participate in the sport following its recommended dismissal from the 2020 Olympics.

Evans says the International Olympic Committee's decision will have a "huge impact" on people taking part and watching wrestling in the future.

There is a slim chance wrestling may win a reprieve when the IOC meets in September to ratify its choice, but it will have to battle with seven other sports if it is to regain its place at the 2020 Games.
