Sir Craig Reedie has been re-elected as World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) President for a second three-year term.

Reedie who has been involved in WADA since its foundation in 1999, took the role in January 2014.

Last week Reedie said he would fight on as “the integrity of sport is at stake”.

WADA has also confirmed a final report into Russian state-sponsored doping will be published on 9 December.

However, the body said at its board meeting in Glasgow that people are still at risk from cyber-hackers who are trying to access athletes’ medical records.

A hacking group known as Fancy Bears has been releasing records of therapeutic use exemptions, which allow athletes to use otherwise-banned drugs because of a verified medical need.
