The IOC also suspended the Russian Olympic Committee until at least the closing ceremony in South Korea. The McLaren Report confirmed Russian Federation engaged in an "institutional conspiracy" to beat the system and swap out tainted drug samples for clean ones.

"This was an unprecedented attack on the integrity of the Olympic Games and sport", IOC President Thomas Bach said in a statement.

The IOC made the ruling after a yearlong investigation into systematic doping by Russian athletes.

Rodchenkov provided the commission with a damning 52-page affidavit, which Press Association Sport has seen, but Schmid said his team had corroborated every claim via testimony from other witnesses, forensic evidence, electronic records and further information.
