Fabian Cancellara, Patrick Reed and Galen Rupp are among the latest Olympics athletes whose medical records were leaked by hacking group Fancy Bears on Friday.

Details of athletes granted therapeutic use exemptions, enabling competitors to use medications for legitimate reasons, have been listed by the hackers on the Russian cyber espionage group's website this month.

Fancy Bears started the week by listing the confidential medical records of the likes of Rafael Nadal, Mo Farah and Justin Rose, which it obtained by hacking a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) database.

Olympic time-trial champion Cancellara, American golfer Reed - preparing to compete in the Ryder Cup next week - and Rio marathon bronze medallist Rupp were among the 41 athletes whose information was disclosed four days later.

American Rupp, who took 10,000m silver behind training partner Mo Farah at the London Games, denied any wrongdoing following allegations made in a BBC investigation last year.

South African Cameron van der Burgh, who won silver in the 100 metre breaststroke in Brazil after taking gold at the London Games, is named in a list which includes fellow swimmer Cate Campbell - winner of five Olympic medals for Australia. 

Serena and Venus Williams were listed in the first leak along with gymnastics sensation Simone Biles.

There is no evidence of any wrongdoing by the athletes involved.
