A Russian doctor has been banned for life from any involvement in athletics.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) said “clear evidence” showed Dr Sergei Portugalov doped athletes.

A 2015 World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) report said he was “very active in the conspiracy to cover up athletes’ positive tests in exchange for a percentage of their winnings”.
