LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - The IOC ethics commission has recommended the provisional suspension of Lamine Diack as an honorary member after he was placed under investigation for corruption.

Diack served as a full International Olympic Committee member from 1999 to 2014, when he became an honorary member.

Diack, the former president of the International Association of Athletics Federations, was put under formal investigation in France last week on corruption and money laundering charges.

Diack is suspected of taking more than 1 million euros ($1.1 million) to cover up positive doping tests in Russia.

The IOC ethics decision came on the same day a World Anti-Doping Agency panel was releasing its findings into allegations of systematic doping in Russia.
