The International Olympic Committee (IOC), on Thursday, warned India of a possible ban from the Olympics unless it resolves the spat over the country's sports chiefs.

After a two-day meeting here, the IOC executive board said India will have to take care of a number of issues.

“Consequently if the situation does not evolve positively, the IOC executive board will consider taking appropriate measures and actions which might seriously affect the representation and participation of India at the Olympic Games and international sports events coming up,” the IOC said in a statement.

IOC's threat came after the Indian government last year decided to limit the tenure and age of the country's top sports officials. — PTI
