The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday opted to remove wrestling from the programme of sports at the 2020 Games, a spokesman said.

The decision, taken at the IOC's executive committee meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, means wrestling now faces a fight against seven other sports for inclusion at the Games, the location of which will be decided later this year.
