    Canadian sports law professor Richard McLaren said he would present the second part of the report on the alleged doping abuse in Russia on December 9 in London, World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) press service said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to press release, McLaren will hold a special press conference at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London from 11:25 to 12:15 GMT.

    The text of the report will be published on WADA's website on the same day.

    In July, a WADA commission led by McLaren presented a report based on the investigation results, in which Russia was accused of running a state-wide doping program, urging the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to consider a blanket ban on the entire Russian team. The IOC instead opted to let individual sports federations decide on the matter.

    As a result, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) banned Russian athletes from taking part in international competitions including the 2016 Summer Olympics. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) later banned all Russian Paralympic athletes from the 2016 Summer Paralympics and the 2018 Winter Games.
