Sports Minister Tracey Crouch said "everyone involved in sport must work together" following fresh claims of doping by Olympic athletes.

These are serious allegations and it is right they are being referred by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to its Independent Commission for investigation. I know UK Anti-Doping (UKAD), one of the best anti-doping agencies in the world, is also supporting this action, and has made it clear it will assist with WADA's enquiries.

UKAD has worked tirelessly to ensure athletes and sport are clean. But everyone involved in sport must work together to ensure we maintain the spirit of sport and prevent doping.
