MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has already done enough to meet the terms set by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) for lifting a ban on its athletes in international competitions, Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Friday.

The IAAF said earlier on Friday that Russia had "significant work to do" before the association would be willing to lift the ban, increasing the prospects of Russian athletes not being able to compete in the Rio Olympics.
