Russia were banned Tuesday from the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games by the International Olympic Committee over its state-orchestrated doping programme, but clean Russian athletes will be allowed to compete under an Olympic flag. The sanction was the toughest ever levelled by the International Olympic Committee for drug cheating and came just 65 days ahead of the Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. (Video: SNTV)
