Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko

Russian Sports Minister promises to resign if Russia is banned from Rio 2016

The threat is hanging over Russia after the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) revealed they would push for such a sanction if its latest Independent Commission found evidence of state-supported doping at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The results of the report are due to be revealed no later than July 15.
