A decision on whether Russian athletes will be allowed to compete at this summer's Olympics in Rio is set to be made in June.

The IAAF, athletics' world governing body, announced on Thursday that its ruling Council would convene at a meeting in Vienna on June 17.

The Council will hear reports from its taskforce, which is monitoring Russia's anti-doping progress.

Russia was suspended by the IAAF last November over "state-sponsored" doping revealed in a report commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

On Wednesday, Russia announced reforms it hopes will repair the credibility of its anti-doping body and will see its athletics team declared eligible to compete in Rio.

Under the proposals announced by the Russian ministry of sport, all track and field athletes intending to compete in Rio will undergo a minimum of three independent, externally-administered anti-doping controls before the Olympics.

These controls will be carried out by the IAAF and be in addition to existing anti-doping procedures. Two independent international experts, nominated by WADA, will be based full-time in Moscow from the end of April.

At its last meeting in March, the IAAF Council ruled Russia had "further significant work" to do before its international suspension could be lifted.
