The IOC have announced that there will be no Russia team at the Winter Olympics - but Russian athletes will be able to compete as neutrals.

The ruling followed an investigation and report into what the IOC called "the systemic manipulation of the anti-doping system in Russia".

Individuals who can prove they are clean will be invited to participate under a neutral flag and referred to as "Olympic athletes from Russia".

"This should draw a line under this damaging episode and serve as a catalyst for a more effective anti-doping system led by Wada," said IOC president Thomas Bach.
