Later in the day, Farah released a statement explaining that he had been informed by the International Tennis Federation that he had failed a drug test on October 17 of past year.

"As stated by the Colombian Olympic Committee in 2018, this substance is found frequently in Colombian meat and may affect athletes" test results, ' he said.

"Two weeks before the test mentioned".

Together with his partner Juan Sebastian Cabal, Farah won back-to-back Grand Slams past year, becoming national heroes.

'And I was also tested at least 15 other times randomly in the global circuit throughout the year with the same negative result. "I will work harder than ever to return to the courts in the shortest time possible".

Cabal is free to find a new partner in Melbourne this week ahead of the start of next week's Australian Open. He contends the positive test is the result of tainted multivitamins.

He has the right to contest the provisional suspension, but the ITF says he has not yet done so.

The second player - Chile's Nicolas Jarry - stood as high as No 38 in the singles rankings last July, so these are both significant names.
