Associated Press global sports correspondent Rob Harris and Professor Simon Chadwick, global professor of sport at Emlyon Business School, join Eoin Connolly to for the latest SportsPro Podcast to reflect on sport’s reaction to Russia’s invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.

They discuss the sanctions meted out so far, including bans for Russian teams from international and continental club soccer, and what lies ahead for federations looking to unravel close relationships with Vladimir Putin’s regime.

The trio then dive into the complexity of withdrawing oligarch investment and ask whether global sports structures need to be rebuilt to hold off autocratic influence.
