Good Morning Britain published this video item, entitled “Is Wimbledon Right To Ban Russian & Belarusian Competitors From Their Tournament? | GMB” – below is their description.

Players will not receive ranking points at Wimbledon following the decision to ban Russian and Belarusian competitors from the tournament. Players from the countries have been banned by the All England Lawn Tennis Club from all UK grass-court events after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Current world no.1 Novak Djokovic said; “I think it is crazy. When politics interferes with sport, the result is not good.” So is it right to ban Russian sportspeople from competitions?
