Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko has said Britain’s anti-doping system is “even worse” than Russia’s.
A World Anti-Doping Agency commission report accused Russia of “state-sponsored” doping and of contributing to the “sabotaging” of London 2012.
Mutko said: “We’re hearing that medals won by our athletes in London must be taken away. But it’s the British system of doping control that operated there.”
Mutko told Russian news agency Interfax the British system had “zero value”.
