Russian track and field athletes will remain banned from the Olympics following claims of state-sponsored doping.

The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) and 68 Russian athletes’ attempt to overturn the suspension, implemented by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has been foiled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).

A handful of Russian athletes could still compete as neutrals at the Rio Olympic Games, which are less than three weeks away.
