Athletics doping: Putin orders Russia investigation

Russian President Vladimir Putin has pledged his full co-operation with international anti-doping bodies, and promised his government's own investigation into claims the country's athletes have been part of systematic doping.

He was speaking for the first time since a World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) independent commission revealed its damning findings on Monday.
