MOSCOW: Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday that Russia and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) had reached an understanding on the handover of data from the former Moscow anti-doping laboratory.

Russia was due to hand over the data to WADA by the end of 2018 in order for RUSADA, its national anti-doping agency, to keep its accreditation.

A WADA delegation is in Moscow to retrieve the laboratory data, having returned empty-handed last month.
