Russians ‘have cleanest team’ for Rio Games as 271 athletes cleared to compete

Russia will have 271 athletes eligible to compete at the Rio Games, says the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
This is more than two-thirds of their original entry list of 389 athletes, despite the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) recommending a blanket ban after a doping scandal.
Russia’s Olympic Committee president Alexander Zhukov said his country will have “the cleanest team” at the Games.
