How Did Nikita Kamaev Die? Former Russian Anti-Doping Chief Dies Of Heart Attack 2 Months After Resigning.
|Nikita Kamaev had resigned his post only two months earlier|
His reported death comes two months after he resigned his post at Rusada following the doping scandal which engulfed Russian athletics.
Tass quoted Rusada's former director general Ramil Khabriev as saying it appeared to have been a heart attack.
Russia was suspended from international athletics last November.
A commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) accused Russian athletics of state-backed doping, corruption and extortion in an extensive report.
"It looks like an extensive infraction," Tass quoted Mr Khabriev as saying.
"He complained of heartache after a skiing session. He has never complained about heart problems, at least to me. Maybe his wife knew about such problems."
Russia was provisionally suspended from international athletics, including the Olympic Games, in November by the International Association of Athletic Associations (IAAF).
