IOC may suspend all Russian athletes from Olympic Games in Rio, media report

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) may decide on the suspension of Russians, representing individual sports disciplines, or even the entire Olympic team from the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro at their summit in Lausanne, Der Spiegel magazine reported, citing its unnamed participants.

It is expected that this scenario will be considered, but the head of the IOC Thomas Bach has a final word in the formation of summit's agenda, and he intends to discuss current situation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, with whom he maintains friendly relations.
