A petition calling on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to relocate the 2014 Winter Games away from Russia has garnered almost 130,000 signatures.
Petitioners want the Games to be taken away from Sochi because of laws in Russia which they say discriminate against LGBT people. They suggest relocating to Vancouver in Canada, which hosted the Games in 2010.
