Papa Massata Diack in Dakar on February 8, 2015

Three athletics officials have had their life bans over an alleged doping cover-up upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Papa Massata Diack, son of ex-IAAF president Lamine Diack, and Russians Valentin Balakhnichev and Alexei Melnikov had their appeals dismissed.

They were charged in December 2015 with multiple breaches of anti-doping rules relating to Russia’s Liliya Shobukhova.
