Russian Olympic Committee President Leonid Tyagachev resigned on Wednesday, two days after President Dmitry Medvedev said sports officials should quit over the country’s poor showing at the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

Russia took a disappointing 11th place in the overall medals table, winning three golds, five silvers and seven bronzes.

Its ice-hockey team was also knocked out of the tournament at the quarter-final stage by eventual winners Canada.
