Russia has been banned from competing in international sports for four years after an investigation from the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) was concluded.
Russia was found guilty of manipulating laboratory data to mask banned substances in its athletes during a probe in January, the BBC reports.
The ban means the country will be unable to compete at the 2020 Olympics in Toyko, the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing.
The report says Russian athletes who can provide proof that they were unaffected by the doping scandal will be able to compete, however, under a neutral flag.
Wada vice-president Linda Helleland said on Twitter that she believed the punishment was still “not enough” and that the organization “owe it to the clean athletes to implement the sanctions as strongly as possible.”
Russia has 21 days to appeal the ban to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).
The price of gold could jump 9% to $1,600 per ounce by the end of March, according to Goldman Sachs.
The investment bank stood by its three-month, six-month, and 12-month forecasts in a research note last week. It highlighted as factors underpinning the price: political uncertainty, recession fears, high household savings, low interest rates, an equities selloff, growth of emerging markets, moderate growth in mine output, robust central-bank purchases, and greater discussion of Modern Monetary Theory, among others.
Goldman’s analysts said they “remain optimistic” about gold going into 2020, given investors view it as a safe or “haven” asset during turbulent times.
“We still see upside in gold as late cycle concerns and heightened political uncertainty will likely support investment demand for gold as a defensive asset.”
These are Goldman’s 10 key reasons to expect a higher gold price:
While the actor admitted he doesn’t “take a huge interest” in the royal family, Radcliffe told People Now he is aware that “Meghan Markle is being treated to the full force of the British media.”
“That’s why I always thought their relationship was sweet, cause I was like, ‘Man, she must love you if she wants to get involved in this crazy life,'” Radcliffe said, referring to Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry.
“It must be insane. I cannot imagine … you know, what I have and what I went through is like a fraction of what they have and went through.
“And they went through it from birth,” Radcliffe added, referring to Princes Harry and William. “They didn’t even get like, you know, 10 years like I did.
“So while I’m not into the institution of the monarchy, I have a huge amount of respect and empathy for them.”
The Duchess of Sussex recently said she’s struggling to deal with the fame in an emotional ITV interview.
When asked how the increased media attention had affected her physical and mental health, Markle said: “Look, any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging.
“And then when you have a newborn, you know?”
“Also, thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK,” she added. “But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”
The duchess later announced plans to sue British tabloid the Mail on Sunday, after the newspaper published private excerpts from a letter she sent to her father earlier this year.
A legal spokesperson for Markle said at the time that publishing excerpts of the letter was “part of a campaign by this media group to publish false and deliberately derogatory stories about her, as well as her husband.”
