Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is setting up a panel of three to make a final decision on the eligibility of Russians to compete at the upcoming Games in Rio de Janeiro.

IOC spokesman Mark Adams said that the panel will rule on the Russians after a group of judges from the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has had a look at the Russians put forward by the respective sports federations.

"This panel will decide whether to accept or reject that final proposal" by CAS, Adams said. "We must make the final decision."

The panel was decided upon by the IOC executive board and is made up of its members Ugur Erdener of Turkey, Claudia Bokel of Germany and Juan Antonio Samaranch of Spain. They are set to make their decisions before Friday‘s opening ceremony.
