Doping scandal linked to Rio Olympics

There are claims of another doping scandal linked to the Rio Olympics.

The Sunday Times alleges the Kenyan team's track and field manager offered to protect cheating athletes from drug testers.

It comes as Irish boxer Michael O'Reilly awaits the result of an appeal against his suspension following a failed drugs test ahead of his intended Olympic Games debut next Friday.

The Olympic Games has been dogged by doping controversies after Russia was at the centre of a state-sponsored doping scandal.
