Russia has appealed the decision of the judges who granted a bronze medal to Martin Johnsrud Sundby of Norway in a skiathlon event.

      According to the Russian team, the Norwegian crossed into the lane of Maxim Vylegzhanin, gaining an advantage over the Russian who desperately tried to close the narrow gap.

      The judges on site reprimanded Sundby but dismissed the appeal, but the Russian officials lodged a new appeal.

      Sundby acknowledged it was not fair play but said he was too tired to realize what was going on, he was quoted by AP as saying.

      You can make your own judgment by watching the dramatic final here.
