British high jumper Robbie Grabarz is set to be upgraded to a silver medal from London 2012 after Russia's Ivan Ukhov was handed a retrospective sanction for doping on Friday.

Grabarz initially shared the bronze with Qatar's Mutaz Essa Barshim and Canada's Derek Drouin, behind the silver medallist Erik Kynard of the US and Ukhov in gold.
