Countries failing to meet a new uniform code of anti-doping practices will face sanctions in the same way athletes do, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced.

On overall rating, people's support for the government has declined from 64 per cent last year to 61 per cent this year. Incidentally, 38 per cent people previous year gave credit to the government for keeping the prices down.

The global anti-doping body WADA may allow the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) to resume its operations under worldwide supervision as early as this November, the WADA chief has said, TASS reports.

Isinbayeva had been sharply critical of the McLaren report, claiming it unfairly targeted Russian Federation in what she described as a "political act".

WADA has given Russian Federation a lengthy list of reforms needed to regain its compliance with global anti-doping standards, one of which was Isinbayeva's removal.

It appears any decision about Russia's eligibility for Pyeongchang will be made under current rules.
