UK Athletics has made further changes to its leadership by recruiting ex-netball chief Joanna Adams as CEO while Chris Clark will step down as chair.

Nic Coward, who was the interim CEO, will be chair on a temporary basis.

It comes two days after UK Sport commissioned an independent review into the governing body because of issues that have raised “major concern”.
