The governing body for world athletics, IAAF, has denied that its president, Sebastian Coe, misled British members of parliament over how much he knew about the corruption allegations that have hit the sport.
It comes a day before Coe and the IAAF will decide whether or not Russian athletes can compete at the Rio Olympics.
In November, the world anti-doping agency produced a damning report on Russian athletics and produced evidence of state-sponsored doping that left Russia suspended.
A recent report has alleged obstruction and deception by Russia at the highest level.
