A decision on Russian teenage figure skater Kamila Valieva’s doping case will be made on Monday.

The 15-year-old, who failed a drugs test in December, will have a hearing on Sunday at 12:30 GMT.

A Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) panel will then decide whether she is able to compete again at Beijing 2022.

Valieva, who had the sample collected on 25 December, became the first female skater to land a quadruple jump at an Olympics as her team won last Monday.
