Kenya has been found to have broken global anti-doping rules, leaving the country's participation at the Rio Olympics at risk.

The World Anti-Doping Agency's declared Kenya "non-compliant" with its code.

But it's up to the International Olympic Committee to decide whether to ban the African nation.

That eventuality remains unlikely as Spain and Mexico are also non-compliant and haven't faced punishment from the IOC.
