The head of an investigation into claims that Russia ran a state-sponsored programme of sports doping has said that more than 1,000 athletes were involved in a systematic conspiracy.
He said the resulsts speak for themselves
"The Russian team corrupted the london olympic games"
Professor Richard McLaren published an initial report earlier this year that led to more than 100 Russian athletes being barred from competing in the Rio Olympics.
He said the doping programme was at its height at the 2012 Olympics in London where Russia won 24 gold medals.
Branded a hero by the sporting world, labelled as a traitor in her homeland, athlete Yuliya Stepanova, with the help of her husband, exposed one of the greatest sporting scandals of all time – the systemic Russian state-sponsored doping programme.
Now living in hiding in the US, Yuliya Stepanova talks to the BBC for the 100 Women season about the cheating, cover-ups and life on the run.
