MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Friday it regretted a decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to dismiss 47 appeals from Russian athletes and coaches to take part in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

CAS issued a statement on the matter earlier on Friday, putting an end to a months-long saga over their Olympic fate.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call that Russia regretted the decision and would continue to help Russian athletes defend their rights.
