The world bans Russia from Olympics, World Cup and other big events for cheating over doping – WATCH

LAUSANNE/MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia was banned from the world’s top sporting events for four years on Monday, a period that includes the next summer and winter Olympics and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, for tampering with doping-related laboratory data.

The decision by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is a serious blow to Russia’s already tarnished sporting reputation and a disappointment for Russian sportsmen and sportswomen, who will not now be able to perform at the Olympics under their own flag and national anthem.
