20 extra Russian athletes, Mutko enchantment Olympic doping bans

Russian athletes must compete neutrally as part of a collective punishment issued in response to a "systemic manipulation" of the anti-doping system at events including the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games. "The IOC informed us that they understand and accept our stance".

"We believe that their reaction was normal and constructive", he said. "Judging by the letter from (IOC President) Thomas Bach, this situation will not affect our long-term relations with the IOC".

"We came to a friendly agreement with Bosco for this edition of the Olympic Winter Games", the IOC press service said in a statement for TASS.

"We have found the way how we will remove the logo - we will sewing on top of them patches that say IOC", Bosco head said.

The IOC had told TASS staff members would continue to wear non-branded Bosco clothing at Pyeongchang 2018 but Members' uniforms would be provided by "another manufacturer".

"On some of the clothing, such as scarves and gloves, we will be simply removing the logo, because it will be cheaper".

The IOC has ruled that operated a doping program when it hosted the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, and has banned 43 Russian athletes and some officials from the Olympics for life as a result.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) headquarters is pictured on the day of an Executive Board meeting on sanctions for Russian athletes in Lausanne, Switzerland December 5, 2017.

While "s case will not be heard until after next month's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, the athletes" appeals will be fast-tracked.

CAS also confirmed to AFP that the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC), now suspended by the IOC, had decided not to appeal to CAS, sport's highest court.

The country has been banned from taking part at the 2018 Winter Olympics due to this widespread doping.
