Russia loses another global sporting showpiece

The Volleyball Men's World Championship was due to be held in Russia later this year
Russia will not host the 2022 Volleyball Men's World Championship, officials at international governing body FIVE have announced.
Russia was due to host the showpiece from August 26 to September 11 later this year at 11 venues in 10 host cities across the country.
FIVE announced the step in a statement on Tuesday, citing Russia's military actions in Ukraine.
