    Oh look he DID take something, and remembers now. That’s mad cos he was adamant that the test was wrong and he did nothing wrong. Fupping lying fraud.

      Well if you read the story properly you will see that he took a supplement which contained a banned substance. If so he did not take it intentionally, he was just stupid.

      We have all done silly things in our time so I kind of feel sorry for him because his life’s work has gone flying out the window. Of course there is then the question as to where the supplement came from because if it was bought on the internet then god knows what was in it.

        Yeah. Right. Mistakenly took a banned substance in a supplement given to him by an unnamed party who wasn’t part of the team. Sounds legit. Like contador & the contaminated beef. Absolute Rubbish. Lies up on lies.

        Stupid is correct. As Bernard Dunne said you have absolutely no reason to be taking anything other than is given to you by your team.

          Agreed. Giving him the benefit of the doubt it was a really stupid thing to do. I expect there are things in some legitimate sports supplements which would flag up as banned substances too? There are no details as to what it was yet of course.

            yeah I think I heard that said before, you could be taking something pretty generic, over the counter and seemingly harmless but that at a sporting level it could contain some banned substances. Would be interesting to hear what his coaches have to say, you would hope athletes would be pretty educated in supplements these days

            They usually flag up as banned because they are masking agents for EPO etc. The actual drugs are long gone from the system, and they take anything from ‘supplements’ to diahorrea or athsma medicine to mask the anomalies in their blood results. ‘Oh my super oxygenated blood and my off the wall vo2 levels? Probably my legally obtained athsma medicine for my totally existent athsma.’

            If he thought for a moment that this supplement was legit then he’d have gotten it through his team. I have great difficulty giving him the benefit of the doubt. It would appear he thought this would improve his performance and he was willing to take it “off the books”.

      I particularly enjoy the ‘must we fling this filth at our pop kids’ story on the UK Star’s front page alongside a picture of a young lady in her scanties.
