Wada: Russia remains non-compliant with code

Russia's hopes of competing at the Winter Olympics in February have suffered a setback, with the World Anti-Doping Agency saying the country remains non-compliant with its code.

Last year, an independent report commissioned by Wada found evidence of state-sponsored doping in the country.

Wada told BBC Sport last week the "best solution" is for Russia to "work with them" after receiving new intelligence.
Russia's sports minister said they have "fulfilled all of their obligations".

Russia's anti-doping agency (Rusada) had pledged to follow international recommendations to get the ban - implemented after an initial Wada report in 2015 - lifted.
