Wimbledon organisers have announced a complete ban on players from Russia and Belarus at this year's coveted championships. The ban will affect the likes of World No 2 Daniil Medvedev, former World No 1 Victoria Azarenka and World No 4 Aryna Sabalenka.

The decision by the All England Club is enforced due to Russia and Belarus' ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
