The executive board of the International Olympic Committee has put forward three new names for election as IOC members, although Lord Sebastian Coe, the president of World Athletics, has not been proposed given a perceived conflict of interests.

Fifa president Gianni Infantino, International Tennis Federation president David Haggerty and Yasuhiro Yamashita, president of the Japanese Olympic Committee, are the three figures who are set to be elected as members at the 135th IOC Session on January 10 in the body’s home city of Lausanne, Switzerland.
