Berlin - The management of Russia's scandal-hit anti-doping agency RUSADA has resigned, it was reported on Thursday.

Executive director Nikita Kamaev is one of those to depart according to the R-Sport agency.

Russia was recently suspended from athletics by governing body IAAF following a report from a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) commission of systematic doping and cover-ups of positive doping tests in the country.

RUSADA was also suspended and reform of the anti-doping body is one of the conditions laid down by the IAAF if Russian athletes are to return in time to compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
