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.
