Paul Pogba suspended for anti-doping offence

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been provisionally suspended from playing because of an anti-doping offence.
Italy’s national anti-doping tribunal (Nado) said Pogba returned a test with elevated levels of testosterone after Juve’s 3-0 win at Udinese on August 20.
30-year-old France international Pogba, was an unused substitute but was selected at random for post-match drug testing.
If found guilty of doping, he could face a ban of between two and four years.
Nado said Pogba had violated anti-doping rules when they found the prohibited substance “non-endogenous testosterone metabolites” and the results were “consistent with the exogenous origin of the target compounds”.
Testosterone is a hormone that increases the endurance of athletes.
The BBC says Pogba has three days to produce a counter-analysis of the result to Nado.
