The World Anti-Doping Agency will decide later today whether to lift a three year old ban on Russian athetes. But an advisory committee has already said that it should lift it, creating accusations from United States officials that they are being bounced into a decision.

WADA, which is the main global body tasked with preventing doping in sport, suspended Russia's anti-doping agency RUSADA in November 2015 after a WADA report outlined evidence of state-backed, systematic doping in Russian athletics.

Sports Correspondent Andy Robini told Euronews's Good Morning Europe that the decision is likely to have a significant impact on the future of sport.
