A group of 13 Russians lost a last-ditch bid to beat their country's doping ban and take part in the Pyeongchang Olympics yesterday, the day before the opening ceremony. The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), which is also dealing with 47 other Russian appeals, said it lacked jurisdiction to deal with the six athletes and seven doctors, coaches and support staff.

CAS said separately that a decision over the 47 others attempting to gain late entry into the Olympics would be announced on Friday at 11:00 am (1400 GMT).
