Updated 23:05, 17-Dec-2020

Sport's highest court announced on Thursday its decision to reduce Russia's doping ban from four to two years from the international sport, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said in a statement.

The ruling will leave Russian athletes without their flag and national anthem at next year's Tokyo Olympics and at the 2022 soccer World Cup in Qatar, a severe blow to Russian sport which has been tarnished in recent years by a string of doping scandals.
