The body of missing Olympian Yulia Balykina has been found dumped in woodland near Minsk in Belarus. The champion sprinter had been missing since October 28.

Police spokesman Alexander Turban said the body of the 31-year-old had been wrapped in cellophane and concealed in woods near a village just outside the Belrussian capital. “It was wrapped in plastic wrap and carefully covered with moss,” spokesman Sergei Kabakovich told Agence France-Presse.
