CJ Ujah, a member of Great Britain’s silver medal-winning men’s 4x100m relay team at the Olympics in Tokyo, has been provisionally suspended for an anti-doping violation.
Ujah ran the opening leg in the final, with the team rounded out by Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake only being passed in the closing stages by Italy.
The quartet were eventually beaten by just one-hundredth of a second, with Canada back in third and China finishing just outside the medal positions.
Ujah was one of four athletes named in a statement from the Athletics Integrity Unit on Thursday, along with Bahrain 1500m runner Sadik Mikhou, Georgian shot putter Benik Abramyan and Kenyan sprinter Mark Otieno Odhiambo.
The 27-year-old’s anti-doping test is alleged to have shown the “presence/use of a prohibited substance” – namely Ostarine and S-23.
