There can be no Russian coat of arms, national emblems or Russian Olympic Committee marking, and the IOC has suggested a circular logo that says "Olympic Athlete from Russia" in red writing on a white background, with no third colour.

The latest sanctions against the Russian athletes stem from its investigation into doping at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The Russian Olympic Assembly recently voted to participate in the 2018 Olympics under a neutral flag, which is allowed by the International Olympic Committee as long as those granted permission to compete agree to follow outlined rules.

More than 200 athletes are set to compete in South Korea as an "Olympic Athlete from Russia", with a logo saying the same thing.

Clothing may bear one of only two phrases: "Olympic Athlete from Russia" or "O.A.R".

Kusnirovich said he was disappointed by the decision to ban Russian Federation from the Olympics. We have worked hard over the last seven years to make our dream a reality and now the global sports festival is within reach for us all."Even so the Games remain overshadowed by tensions with the nuclear-armed North, and the Russian national team has been banned over accusations of state-sponsored doping".
