2016 Olympic Verdict



And the statement ends like this...

The provisional suspension means Russia won't host a couple of major events next year either...

All of this if the provisional suspension becomes a full one. The criteria for that will be decided in the next few days.

The fallout from this will last weeks if not months. Thanks for joining us for this impromptu min-by-min. Goodnight.
