Doping: Usain Bolt forfeits Olympic gold medal

Usain Bolt loses 2008 Olympic relay gold in teammate's doping case

Usain Bolt will have to hand back one of his nine Olympic gold medals after Jamaican team-mate Nesta Carter tested positive for a banned substance.

Carter was part of the Jamaican quartet that won the 4x100m in Beijing in 2008.

His was one of 454 selected doping samples retested by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) last year, and has been found to contain the banned stimulant ‘Methylhexaneamine’.

Bolt, 30, completed an unprecedented ‘triple triple’ in Rio de Janeiro last summer and won gold in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 by 100 metre relay to add to his successes in the same events in 2008 and 2012.

Carter, 31, was also part of the squad that won the event in London five years ago and helped Jamaica win at the world championships in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
