Injury rules David Rudisha out of London

Russian Federation was accused in a World Anti-Doping Agency report a year ago of widespread state-sponsored doping.

Drug-testing was still insufficient and banned coaches were still operating freely, he told reporters in London after a presentation to the IAAF Council, saying: "There are still issues to be resolved". "They have started but where they used to do 19,000 a year it's now just a few thousand and RUSADA (Russia's anti-doping agency) remains not code-compliant". "We are working with the Russians on the changing culture".

David Rudisha has been forced to pull out of London 2017 in the stadium where he shattered the world record for the 800m.

Coe said that the biggest problem his sport now faced was not doping but engagement, particularly with the younger generation.

A return to the fold remains unlikely before 2018 after the head of the IAAF's Task Force, Rune Andersen, said on Monday that Russian Federation had yet to meet several of the criteria for reinstatement.

A spokesperson for the Afghan government said the main explosion may have been "caused by a auto bomb". IS have been targeting Shiite minority crowds and mosques in Afghanistan for around a year.

Rutherford said: "As an athlete there is no substitute for the thrill of competing in a world-class event such as the World Championships".

The double world and Olympic champion said an MRI scan on the right-leg injury showed it would not heal in time for the championships, which open at London's 2012 Olympic Stadium on Friday.

His biggest draw, Usain Bolt, will be appearing for the last time in London and Coe recognised that filling that void would be an enormous, and probably impossible, challenge.

"It was nice getting a personal best this year".

Baker took to Twitter to say: "The IAAF's decision is very disappointing and means there will only be 28 participants in the men's high jump, showing once again the field events must give way for others".
