The International Olympics Committee have recommended that former IAAF president Lamine Diack should be provisionally suspended as an honorary member. This is as a result of findings of an independent report into claims of doping, cover-ups, and extortion in Russian athletics. The independent commission was set up by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). The 82-year old from Senegal is accused of being complicit in a cover-up of doping by Russian athletes. French police confirmed that he is under investigation for allegedly receiving more than 1 million euros to cover up doping. His son Papa Massata Diack, advisor Habib Cisse and the former IAAF anti-doping chief Gabriel Dolle are also being investigated by French police.
