2. ASIC yesterday released a new 96-page document with its updated guidance for responsible lending laws.

3. Russia has been banned from major sporting events for four years by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), including the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. "Russia was afforded every opportunity to get its house in order and re-join the global anti-doping community for the good of its athletes and of the integrity of sport, but it chose instead to continue in its stance of deception and denial," WADA president Sir Craig Reedie said.
