But Russian athletes who can prove they are clean would be allowed to compete in South Korea under a neutral flag. 

It follows an investigation into allegations of state-sponsored doping at the 2014 Games hosted by Russia in Sochi.

"This should draw a line under this damaging episode," the IOC said. 

IOC president Thomas Bach made the announcement in Lausanne on Tuesday. 

Bach and his board have come to their decision after reading through the findings and recommendations of a 17-month investigation headed up by the former president of Switzerland, Samuel Schmid.

athletes to compete in February under the name "Olympic Athlete from Russia (OAR)".

Despite repeated Russian denials, the Schmid report has found evidence of "the systemic manipulation of the anti-doping rules and system" which back up previous allegations of government involvement in cheating in the run up to and during the Winter Olympics almost four years ago. 

Bach said: "This should draw a line under this damaging episode and serve as a catalyst for a more effective anti-doping system led by Wada."

The Games in South Korea, which start on 9 February, will now be without one of the powerhouses of Olympic sport.
