PARIS: Russian athletics chiefs and the sons of the former world body president Lamine Diack blackmailed athletes suspected of doping to let them keep competing, according to a secret World Anti-Doping Agency inquiry quoted by the Mediapart news website. Mediapart said it had seen a report by a WADA independent commission which is due to be made public next Monday. French police on Tuesday charged former International Association of Athletics Federations president Diack with corruption over suspicions he took bribes for covering up doping cases.
