The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on Tuesday suspended its accreditation of a Moscow anti-doping laboratory following accusations against Russia of breaching anti-doping regulations.

A WADA commission issued a report on Monday accusing Russia of numerous violations of global anti-doping codes and recommended the country be banned from international athletics for an undetermined period.

"The suspension, which takes effect immediately, prohibits the Moscow Antidoping Center from carrying out any WADA-related anti-doping activities including all analyses of urine and blood samples," WADA said in a statement published on its website.

The laboratory can appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport within 21 days after being notified of the suspension, according to the statement.
