Russian gymnast Ivan Kuliak has come under fire after wearing the 'Z' war symbol on his chest at the Doha World Cup medal ceremony.

Kuliak took home a bronze medal, while Ukraine's Illia Kovtun scored gold after competing in parallel bars. The 'Z' symbol is associated with Russian pro-war military vehicles during the Ukraine invasion. Kuliak is to face disciplinary action after The International Gymnastics Federation described the move as "shocking behaviour".
