The sports firm Nike is to continue its sponsorship of Maria Sharapova, despite her being banned for two years for failing a drugs test.

The multinational corporation which had suspended its relationship with Sharapova says it will stand by her, arguing that the International Tennis Federation (ITF) had made the decision based on a “flawed process”.

The Russian tennis player tested positive for the prohibited drug meldonium earlier this year.

She is appealing against the ban.
