CGTN has obtained an exclusive interview with Papa Massata Diack, who is facing corruption charges jointly with his father and former IAAF President Lamine Diack. Earlier this week, the long-awaited trial was delayed until June after new documents were presented at the last minute by Massata. The Diacks, along with four other former senior figures in athletics, are accused of being part of a scheme that involved extorting 23 Russian athletes between 110,000 and 665,000 dollars in exchange for delaying doping sanctions so they could compete at the London 2012 Olympics. Here is CGTN's Saddique Shaban with the interview they all wanted from Dakar.
