Badminton chiefs on Tuesday banned athletes and officials representing Russia and Belarus from participating in tournaments sanctioned by the world federation in response to Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

"BWF has strengthened its measures against the governments of Russia and Belarus by suspending athletes and officials representing these countries from participating at any BWF-sanctioned international tournaments until further notice," it said in a statement.
