The World Anti-Doping Agency has confirmed allegations of widespread Russian doping at the Sochi Olympics.

Speaking at a news conference in Toronto on Monday, Canadian law professor and sports lawyer Richard McLaren said a Moscow laboratory protected the athletes during the 2014 Games and added he was “supremely confident” in the report’s findings.

The results of the report could lead to Russia being banned from next month’s Summer Olympics in Rio although IOC president Thomas Bach indicated last week that he was reluctant to see athletes from one sport punished for the crimes of those from another.
