From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 18 May 2016

The International Olympic Committee has begun a major doping crackdown, saying athletes are likely to be banned from competing even before the games begin. 31 athletes, from 12 countries, in six sports have failed re-tests from the Beijing 2008 Olympics. Investigative journalist Hajo Seppelt was one of the first people to expose the extent of Russia's drug cheating and says they are likely to be front and centre of this investigation.
