Team GB is set to be stripped of the silver medal it won in the 4x100m event at Tokyo 2020, after sprinter CJ Ujah’s B sample came back positive.
Ujah was suspended last month after his A sample tested positive for two banned substances.
The case has been referred to the Court of Arbitration for Sport Anti-Doping Division (CAS ADD), and while there has been no confirmation as yet that Britain will lose one of its medals from the summer Games in China, it is expected that all four sprinters will lose their silver medals, with Canada being upgraded to silver and China being bumped up to the bronze medal position – unless Ujah can produce a justifiable reason for how the substances got into his body.
