Russian athlete Mariya Savinova has received a four-year ban for doping.

CAS issued a decision on Friday regarding Savinova-Farnosova, determining that she was doping between 26 July 2010 through to 19 August 2013.

Savinova, 31, was one of five Russian track and field athletes named in a World Anti-Doping Agency report and has not raced since 2013, according to BBC News.

Savinova, gold medalist in London 2012, world champion in Daegu (2011) and European champion in Barcelona (2010), was provisionally suspended in 2015.

Alexei Melnikov, a long-distance running and race walking coach, was banned for life past year, while Vladimir Kazarin remains suspended pending the results of an investigation.

Should the ruling go against the Russian whose country stands suspended from worldwide competition after being accused of a systematic State-backed doping programme, the athlete who was nicknamed "Kapsabet Express" could move further up the podium to silver.

Following further evidence of widespread drug use, the Russian track team was suspended from all worldwide competitions in November 2015 and missed last year's Olympics.

Dmitriev spoke of secret video footage of suspended coach Kazarin, who is seen in a sports hall in Chelyabinsk during a training session for 400m runner Artem Denmukhametov.

Kazarin is a former coach of Stepanova, who along with husband Vitaly Stepanov has taken up residence at an unknown location in the United States due to having to flee Russian Federation after they provided evidence of state-sponsored doping in 2014.

"I think now it's useless to go to the civil court".

The IAAF said it would no comment on the case as Savinova still has 45 days to decide whether to make an appeal.

Another Russian finalist from the 2012 final, Yelena Arzhakova, has already been banned and Ekaterina Poistogova, who took the bronze medal, is under investigation for doping.

On Tuesday, the Iaaf council unanimously upheld Russia's suspension.
