Yamaha's MotoGP championship leader Valentino Rossi will start last in Sunday's title decider in Valencia after a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling on Thursday.

The Italian had appealed for his back-of-the-grid penalty to be ­suspended to allow him to race on equal terms with Spanish title rival and teammate Jorge Lorenzo pending a further appeal.

However, MotoGP said in a statement that the Lausanne-based court had issued an order dismissing Rossi's application for a stay of execution.
