INTERVIEW-Russian deputy PM calls for IOC to invite cleared athletes to Olympics

MOSCOW, Feb 2 (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko on Friday called for the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to invite the athletes whose doping bans were lifted in a court ruling to compete at this month’s Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

Twenty-eight Russian athletes had their Olympic doping bans overturned and results from the 2014 Sochi Winter Games reinstated after their appeals were upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Thursday. (Reporting by Gabrielle Tétrault-Farber; Editing by William Maclean)
