IOC bans Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko from Rio Games

The International Olympic Committee said on Tuesday it will study "legal options" before deciding whether to ban Russia from the Rio Games over its state-run doping programme.

But Russia's Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko was barred from attending the Games and the IOC ordered a disciplinary commission to look into his ministry's role in what a report called a "state-dictated failsafe system" if drug cheating.
