MOSCOW, Dec 12 (Reuters) - Russian state television station Channel One Russia will broadcast parts of the Winter Olympic Games in which Russian athletes compete under a neutral flag, TASS news agency reported, citing the channel.

"Competition at those disciplines where Russian athletes will take part, of course, will be broadcast," TASS quoted a Channel One Russia spokeswoman as saying on Tuesday. The Russian Olympic Committee agreed on Tuesday to support Russian athletes who choose to compete under a neutral flag in February's Winter Games in South Korea, after the International Olympic Committee last week banned Russia from the Games.
