RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Russia has been ordered to return their gold medals from the 2008 Beijing Olympics 4x100m women's relay, after Yulia Chermoshanskaya tested positive for a banned substance in a reanalysis of her sample.

The International Olympic Committee disqualified her for testing positive for steroid use.
