Wimbledon lifted its ban on players from Russia and Belarus on Friday, confirming they will be allowed to compete as "neutral" athletes.

Players including Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev of Russia and Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus, who were barred from the grass-court grand slam event last year, will have to comply with certain conditions amid the ongoing war in Ukraine.
