WADA has said it believes the hackers, named as APT28 and Fancy Bears, gained access to its anti-doping administration and management system (ADAMS) via an IOC-created account for the Rio Games. He received intravenous infusions of saline solution, morphine sulphate and vicodin administered orally during a period in hospital between July 3 and July 5 in 2014.

Farah, who said prior to the documents being released that he'd only ever had one TUE in 2014, was named for a second TUE in 2008 for triamcinolone.

It's published the confidential medical records of a further 26 athletes, revealing Farah, Nadal and Rose have been granted therapeutic use exemptions to use banned substances.

A spokesperson for Farah said: "As Mo has previously stated, he has got nothing to hide and doesn't have a problem with this or any of his (medical) information being released - as evidenced by the fact that he voluntarily shared his blood data with the Sunday Times past year".

Other high-profile names listed on the Fancy Bears website on Monday include 14-time grand slam tennis champion Rafa Nadal, French fencer Gauthier Grumier and Burundi's 800m silver medallist Francine Niyonsaba.

Fifty-three British athletes from the Rio Olympics may be at risk of having their medical details made public, according to the head of UK Anti-Doping (Ukad).

Rafael Nadal wasted no time in coming out to defend himself in reponse to information leaked by Russian hacking group Fancy Bears which detailed the Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) which the Spaniard was granted at two different points in his career.

Farah and Nadal's TUEs weren't active for Rio, while Rose had authorisation for daily dosages of an anti-inflammatory drug between May and June this year.

Like the British athletes, the vast majority of these TUEs are for asthma medication and many of these drugs no longer require special permission as they were reclassified by WADA in 2010.

WADA believes the "criminal attack" is being carried out as retaliation for investigations that exposed state-sponsored doping in Russian Federation.
