Many coaches only know doping, says Russian Deputy PM Mutko

Mutko's comments follow a decision by the IAAF to uphold the ban on Russia's track team from international competition.

TheĀ IAAF banned Russia in November 2015 for widespread drug use, and said on Tuesday (AEDT) it is unlikely to reinstate the team until November.

That means there will not be an official Russian team at the world track championships in August, though there may be "neutral" athletes competing.
