Seven more Russian competitors were ruled out of the Olympics last night as 27 were cleared, to take the nation's team beyond 200.

Three cyclists were rejected for being named in the World Anti-Doping Agency's McLaren Report and three more were withdrawn by the Russian Olympic Committee because of past doping sanctions, leaving a team of 11.

But 16 of Russia's 17 wrestlers were approved after the sport's governing body, United World Wrestling, completed the process of assessing each Russian athlete's anti-doping record - as all federations are required to do after the International Olympic Committee declined to impose a blanket ban for the state-directed doping programme.

International Cycling Union president Brian Cookson said on Sunday that it would be "difficult to ban an entire team", and so it proved.

Regarding the 11 eligible riders, the UCI said it had carried out a "thorough analysis" of their testing histories and believed this was "sufficient to meet the relevant IOC requirement" .
