The film about the doping system in Russian Federation has won an Oscar at Sunday's 90th Academy Awards (Oscars) in Los Angeles. The awarding ceremony is taking place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and is being broadcasted by ABC.
The director Fogel took a second to dedicate the award to Russian doping whistleblower, Grigory Rodchenkov, the director said, "We dedicate this award to Dr Grigory Rodchenkov - a fearless whistleblower who now lives in grave danger", Fogel said.
