Russia has accepted its "full suspension" from world athletics over widespread doping without even requesting a hearing, the International Association of Athletics Federations said Thursday.The IAAF had provisionally suspended Russia over what a World Anti-Doping Agency report released this month said was "state-sponsored" doping in athletics.The IAAF and WADA have named an inspection team that will set the criteria for Russia's return to competition and verify that it has been carried out.The IAAF has said the conditions must include "immediate" sanctions against Russian athletes and coaches caught doping, a law in Russia to criminalise sports doping and a system so that athletes can "safely tip-off" authorities about drug cheats.
